The Multihazard Planning Framework for Communities in the Wildland-Urban Interface lays out a comprehensive framework that:
- addresses risk from wildfire and other hazards
- encompasses scales from site to neighborhood, community, and region
- identifies a range of planning interventions that can be used to reduce risk and maximize the benefits that forests provide across the scales of concern
It includes a planning systems audit tool, which can be used by regions and the communities within them to identify strengths, gaps, and potential areas for improvement in the jurisdiction's planning system (plans, codes, and public investment and other programs) as they relate to multihazard risk.
