2019/04/30 - 2019/04/30 Rurality and Fires: Disruptive Business Models for Protection and Enhancement of Forest Spaces. The context of extreme vulnerability in rural areas and the potential of business models to promote their sustainability, served as a starting point for a joint reflection. Representative participants from various stakeholder groups jointly identified and discussed the main obstacles and conditions necessary for the implementation of business models.

Institution / Organization
2000/08 - 2000/12 Fieldwork in Zambia (August) and Mozambique (November): The main goal was to produce and validate high resolution maps of burned areas in Northern Mozambique derived from Landsat satellite imagery classification. Experimental burns were done in Zambia for estimating fire behaviour parameters (e.g., combustion efficiency, rate of spread, intensity) and for characterizing the spectral properties of vegetation and burned areas. Vegetation recovery was also monitored with a spectroradiometer.
