Climate change is making wildfires more frequent and more intense. Wildfire experts predict that, by 2041, there will be four large high-intensity wildfires for every three that occur now as the number of days when conditions are conducive to fire increases.
Some countries are reverting to land management techniques used by their indigenous peoples to better manage the risk of wildfires. Early dry season burning reduces the fuel load for conflagrations, making late season wildfires less likely and more manageable.
