    The mission that produced this assessment was prompted by requests from Forestry Department personnel in Zambia to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for formal fire management training. USAID contacted the United States Forest Service's (USFS) International Programs (IP) with the training request. Together, USFS, USAID, and Zambian partners determined that this mission should contribute to understanding how, when, where, and why fire is used in Eastern Province of Zambia. The team would conduct an assessment and then produce this report, which describes the current status of fire management and fire use in Eastern Province, documents the role of fire in dominant vegetation types based on personal observations and available literature, and provides recommendations for formal fire management training and equipment needs.
