Urban Areas Using Innovative Land Use Planning Tools to Adapt to Increasing Risks from Wildfires


Wildfires across the American West are increasing in frequency, size and severity. The impacts from climate change, couples with ongoing development within the wildland-urban interface (WUI), further exacerbate the risks from wildfires.  In response, some urban areas in the West are addressing the growing threat of wildfires using innovative land use planning tools.

Our friends at Headwaters Economics published a report on case studies that show how five urban areas are using innovative land use planning to adapt to increasing wildfire risks.  Read the full report here.
