This is the 21st issue of the EFFIS annual report on forest fires for the year 2020. This report is consolidated as highly appreciated documentation of the previous year's forest fires in Europe, Middle East and North Africa. The section on national reporting gives an overview of the efforts undertaken at national and regional levels in the majority of countries in the EFFIS network. This is followed by information from EFFIS on the evolution of fire danger in the European and Mediterranean regions and the damage caused by fires in the 43 countries on the network.
The preparation and publications of the report aims at improving cooperation with the members of the Expert Group on Forest Fires (EGFF) especially with regard to fire prevention and climate change adaptation measures in relation of fires. Our common aim is to maintain and protect our landscapes and natural heritage, to avoid loss of human lives and to minimise the damage caused to property by uncontrolled forest fires.
