Fire Free Alliance
Implementing Partner: APRIL Group
Partners: Asian Agri, Musim Mas, PM.Haze, Rumah Pohon and Wilmar
A jointly committed collaboration to share knowledge, information and potentially, resources to roll out fire prevention initiatives based on APRIL Group’s Fire Free Village Program (FFVP), and also to enhance fire monitoring, detection and suppression. The community-focused FFVP is a multi-prong fire prevention initiative that seeks to educate, enable and empower villagers against the use of fire for agricultural purposes.
Involved organizations will adopt and implement the FFVP sharing lessons and best practices on how partnerships and engagement with the communities can protect forests from the high risk of fires. NGOs and other partners will contribute towards facilitation to a wider group of companies, research capabilities and where the expertise is available, review fire management strategies and practices of FFA members.
