European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS)
Entry ID: EFFIS


Summary
Abstract: The European Commission DG Joint Research Centre set up since 1999 a research
group to work specifically on the development and implementation of advanced
methods for the evaluation of forest fire risk and mapping of burnt areas at
the European scale. These activities led to the development of the European
Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS). Since the year 2003 EFFIS is part of
the Regulation (EC) No 2152/2003 (Forest Focus) of the European Council and
Parliament on monitoring of forests and environmental interactions. All the
EFFIS activities are coordinated with DG Environment to reach the final users,
Civil Protection and Forest Services, in the Member States.
