- Taking ecological and economic value of forest into consideration during forest fire risk assessment could provide a scientific reference for integrated risk governance. Machine learning was combined with event simulation to implement fire risk assessment based on ecological and economic value of Yunnan forest. From this study, we draw the following conclusions: (1) The forest fire susceptibility can effectively improve the simulated events allocation process. (2) Spatial variation of forest fire risk is caused by wildfire susceptibility, unit area and gross value of forest. This may further contribute to differentiated risk response planning. (3) Results of this paper could provide references for Yunnan forest fire insurance practice.
