The journal “Naturaleza y Sociedad: environmental challenges” will publish a special issue on the theme “Knowledges of Fire in Latin America and the Caribbean: the contribution of UNESCO sites to fire management in the face of climate change emergencies”.
The call for papers is now open and will close on 10 May 2022 (see here for more information).
This special issue is a direct result of the webinar series that the LAC UNESCO Sites Climate Change, Risk and Resilience Platform held in September 2021.
This thematic issue aims to present research analyses and innovative tools on integrated fire management in the context of climate change in unesco sites in Latin America and the Caribbean. We invite all interested authors, including representatives of indigenous peoples and local communities, to submit their contributions on the relationship between wildfires and climate change and land use changes, innovative tools available for fire monitoring and forecasting, as well as examples of good fire management practices in emergency situations, indigenous and local fire use and management, integrated fire management, economics, and fire mitigation and adaptation measures in unesco sites in Latin America and the Caribbean.
