The National Burning Project was an initiative of the Forest Fire Management Group and AFAC. It was funded by AFAC member agencies and the Commonwealth of Australia.
Drawing upon the expertise of scientists, program managers, burn planners and practitioners across Australia, the project documented best practice regarding the strategic, operational and ecological aspects of prescribed burning. A suite of publications provides principles, frameworks and guidance for policy development, program design, burn planning, implementation and evaluation, including the management of risk.
All publications are scheduled for periodic review, and others will be developed as gaps are identified and lessons learned.
