Assessment of EU measures to tackle forest fires, in particular the contribution made by Forest Focus

The briefing argues that there is a need to clarify the role of different EU policies in relation to fire prevention, to ensure that future actions are adequate for tackling forest fires (given the uncertainty surrounding the future of Forest Focus) and that the measures need to be adequately funded. It is one in a series of eight briefings produced for the European Parliament under a Framework contract led by IEEP.
