The project focuses on forest fires risk assessment in the border area between Georgia and Azerbaijan. There is a bilateral agreement in place that allows close cooperation between firefighting forces of both countries and in fact one can suppress fires within the territory of the other country following an official invitation. However, activating such an agreement without an existing risk assessment on forest fires at cross border area and the subsequent cross border risk management and action plans can lead to mistakes, failure to use available resources in an optimum way and can eventually increase risks instead of eliminating them. This project strives to correct this situation.
