Title: Monitoring Forests at the Management Unit Level for Fire Prevention and Control (FIREGUARD) / FIREGUARD
Language: English
Description: The project addresses fire prevention and control in the Mediterranean region. The main focus is on long-term fire prevention.

This information is designed for the district and sector forest unit level but is capable of being integrated to higher levels, as necessary. An Internet application to assist forest managers in long-term fire prevention management was created.The project finished and ran from 2002 to 2005.
