Rehabilitation of Fire-Prone Areas



This includes some early work in the 1990s on rehabilitating fire-prone grassland areas through planting different species, considering the social and ecological appropriateness of the species and prospects for fire management. Another study stressed the need for fire prevention and community involvement in rehabilitating burnt lands. Lack of further fire prevention and management of the rehabilitated areas would lead to wasted efforts.
