The Forests Dialogue is hosting a series of virtual, national and sub-national level roundtable dialogues with the goals of bringing together diverse experiences, knowledge, and interests to understand changing fire dynamics and potential approaches to addressing the increasing risks of fire around the world. The roundtables, to be held in Australia, ASEAN countries, Brazil, and Chile are designed to exchange learnings and foster collaboration within and across regions. The key objectives are to:
Identify and prioritize key challenges, stakeholder engagement needs, and opportunities to work together at national or subnational levels;
Initiate a network for stakeholder groups in the country or region to share perspectives with one another and build trust;
Summarize learnings for future sharing across regions.
Roundtable dialogues are designed to address a shared set of core questions, explore region specific themes, and exchange core learnings across roundtables. The core themes that will be explored in the roundtable dialogues include: key challenges, stakeholder engagement, climate change, good practices, driving action.
