Short description of the solution. Technical details if relevant. Keywords.

In many regions globally rural settlements (villages, towns, scattered farmsteads) and other rural assets
(agricultural fields / crops, infrastructures and other values at risk) are increasingly endangered by
wildfires. This trend is driven by the consequences of land-use change, regional climate change and particularly by the rural exodus, which has resulted in the weakening of rural workforce and selfprotection ability and increasing wildfire hazard on
abandoned lands. In order to enhance the capabilities of local rural communities to defend themselves against wildfires a set of guidelines was developed for the Balkans as a pilot region, designed to be adapted to the conditions of other regions and
countries as deemed appropriate.
