Global - Wildfire Hazard Maps - World Bank Group CCKP

The approach to classify wildfire hazard levels used is based solely on fire weather index climatology. Fire weather indices are used in many countries to assess both the onset of conditions that will allow fires to spread, as well as the likelihood of fire at any point in the landscape. The method presented uses statistical modelling (extreme value analysis) of a 30 year fire weather climatology to assess the predicted fire weather intensity for specific return period intervals. These intensities are classified based on thresholds using conventions to provide hazard classes that correspond to conditions that can support problematic fire spread in the landscape if an ignition and sufficient fuel were to be present.
