VoxEurop points out: “According to experts, sometimes it is misleading to look at the number of acres burned to determine whether fire management was effective or not.”
The Megafires phenomenon, this new generation of fire, is at the heart of studies by global organizations and environmental organizations. Megafires are defined as fires that burn 400,000 acres or more. The phenomenon is directly related to Climate Change.
In accordance with Voxeuropan independent journalistic network that has studied this natural phenomenon and its tragic consequences, especially in the geographical area of the Mediterranean, Climate Change creates weather conditions that are “favorable” for the outbreak of fire.
In fact, VoxEurop points out: “According to experts, sometimes it is misleading to look at the number of acres burned to determine whether fire management was effective or not.”
O Francisco Moreiraan expert on ecology and more specifically on fire management issues at the University of Porto, emphasizes that as we face this natural phenomenon, the new strategy of the authorities to deal with these natural phenomena should focus on how to mitigate the conditions leading to fires.
According to the Independent News Network, the authorities should prioritize policies that will prevent situations leading to fires.
Characteristic is the connection of the megafires phenomenon with the reduction of the population in rural areas. More specifically, the rural areas with the highest rates of population decline are those that suffer the most from the “new generation” natural phenomenon.
However, linking megafires to climate change is also leading the EU to drastic measures. Brussels is focusing on trade agreements with the climate.
In fact, new regulations will be proposed to allow trade sanctions to be imposed on countries that do not comply with obligations arising from the new order of things.
