Description: Even as the magnitude of wildfire problems increases globally, United Nations agencies are acting to mitigate the risk of wildfire disasters to members. Fire management organizations worldwide may vary considerably in operational scope, depending on the number and type of resources an organization manages. In any case, good fire weather information is vital. This paper describes an approach for introducing fire weather/fire danger-rating technology into fire agrometeorology operations, based on the collective experience of the United States, Canada, and Australia. A prototype fire weather forecasting system is presented, which has produced fire weather products for various parts of the world on a trial basis.
