Hazard Mitigation | Urban Heat Resilience

This guide is designed to help planners and local officials select tactics that can help reduce hazards associated with extreme heat. It analyzes cool roofs, green roofs, cool pavements, and urban forestry. For each tactic, the guide provides decision-making criteria and examples of mandates, incentives, public education programs, and government operations.
