Greece has entered a partnership of 10 European countries that are part of the European Forest Fire Monitoring using Informa-tion Systems (EFFMIS) programme, on the exchange of best practices for the monitoring and prevention of forest fires. The inaugural EFFMIS meetings were held on Monday and Tuesday at the environment ministry offices.

The programme also examines how each area can align its national policies with EU regulations on the issues of protecting natural resources from forest fires.

The Greek environment ministry is participating as a partner in a consortium that includes 11 agencies from Greece, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Lithuania, Poland, Bulgaria and Slovenia. This includes specialised bodies with valuable technical know-how, such as the Wood and Forest Services Centre of Castilla & Leon of Spain, the San Marco Project Research Centre of the University of Rome, the Executive Forest Agency of Bulgaria and others.
