the Netherlands - 09 June, 2022
Tropenbos International is looking for a consultant for an in-depth review of fire risk management in the tropics and its relation to Fire-Smart Territory (FST) approach.
The review is part of the TBI wildfire project and aims to gain better understanding of the key elements of the FST approach, and how these elements are/have been reflected as key factors in addressing fire risk in the tropical landscapes or ecosystems. The current assumptions are that despite the absence of reference to FST approach, the current handling of fire issues in the tropics might have involved in or benefited from the concept, especially with regards to collaborative governance and empowerment of the local communities. In the case of persistent recurrent fires, the gaps in handling them might reflect those deemed important in the FST approach concept, or on the contrary, there might be other factors not related to the FST that are more crucial for tropical context.
