The Global Fire Partnership, 2004-2009 , included The Nature Conservancy, World Conservation Union (IUCN), University of California, Berkeley’s Center for Fire Research and Outreach, and WWF. The GFP recognized the need to assess the state of the world’s fire regimes, craft effective conservation strategies, and build a global constituency of partners to address fire as a conservation issue. This report summarizes findings on the current role and status of fire around the globe, and discusses related consequences for people and ecosystems. Authors review the main causes of “altered fire regimes” as well as some similarities and differences among the major regions of the globe, also known as “realms.” The Global Fire Partnership released its original report on the role and status of fire, Fire Ecosystems and People: A Preliminary Assessment, at the World Conservation Congress in 2004.
