Centre of Excellence for Prescribed Burning

National prescribed burning guidelines and frameworks

These guidelines and frameworks were produced by the National Burning Project.

The National Burning Project has brought together interrelated aspects of prescribed burning across Australasia to design guiding frameworks and principles for a more holistic and consistent approach to prescribed burning. The project has delivered a suite of products that informs all levels of prescribed burning.

The National Burning Project was an initiative of the Forest Fire Management Group (FFMG) and jointly funded by member agencies of the Australian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC) and Commonwealth of Australia.
