Description: A steadily shrinking forest land base and the social demands of an expanding population will require utmost skill from land managers, if forest products are to meet the demands of 6 billion people in the year 2000. Developed nations have recognized fire's role, both as a tool and a destructive force. By contrast, developing nations have not instituted adequate policy in coping with wildland fire. There is need for government support of programs that will maximize the beneficial use of fire in the forest, while recognizing its destructive force and taking adequate protection measures. The consequences of inadequate wildland fire management must be made known; options for cost/benefit management developed; and technology transfer subsidized by aid programs to developing nations. Wildland fire in the year 2000 must incorporate strategies that will be compatible with social forestry programs.
