Understanding fire ecology is a primary consideration in planning and implementing fire management. Some high risk forests must be protected from wildfires, whereas fire plays an integral role in savanna ecosystems, so it is essential to better understand human use of fire. Guidelines for all stakeholders must be developed that align with their respective management priorities and implemented, and provide the required skills and equipment to key stakeholders to manage wildfire risk. Three overarching considerations are identified, as the country moves forward to developing, adopting and implementing an effective fire management strategy. These are the need to improve communication, collaboration, and coordination.
