This methodology paper reports on the methodologies to be used in addressing two main objectives of the project:

        Determine current and past patterns of fire in a range of strategically located sites

        Determine positive and negative impacts of a range of fire management strategies, particularly for forestry

The proposed outputs that relate to these objectives are

        Describe methodology for, and description of, biophysical and socio-economic condition of the field sites in eastern Indonesia

        Synopsis of existing and past fire management practices in different locations

        Contemporary fire and land-use maps

The biophysical and socio-economic information will be used to create a GIS for the sites in eastern Indonesia.
