Description: This paper reports on the research and operational results of efforts made by some rural communities, the National Forestry Commission (CONAFOR), the Universidad Autónoma Chapingo (UACH) and other organizations to achieve integrated fire management in central Mexico. The research includes the latest results obtained by UACH's Ajusco Project on the subject, in both fire-maintained and fire-sensitive ecosystems. Operationally, the paper reports on the holding of workshops, meetings and prescribed burns oriented towards this type of fire management in Mexico City and the states of Mexico, Puebla and Tlaxcala, organized with producers by CONAFOR and UACH. It is a joint effort involving farmers, government organizations at the federal and state levels, and a teaching and research institution. It seeks to contribute to this management alternative, through the merger of the ecological use of fire, its judicious and low-impact use by rural communities, and the prevention and fighting of forest fires, promoting all kinds of positive impacts and reducing the negative ones.
