Complete Title: 
Global review of forest fires
IUCN Publication

Fires are a natural phenomenon. However, over 90% of all wildland fires today are due to human action causing significant forest loss between 6-14 million hectares of forest per annum. This leads to enormous economic losses, damage to environmental, recreational and amenity values, and loss of life. There is strong recognition that action is needed to catalyse a strategic international response to forest fires. This report by WWF and IUCN reviews the global situation following the 1997-98 fires and suggests recommendations for action.
