American Planning Association: Urban Heat Resilience

I’m happy to share the American Planning Association (APA)’s Planning Advisory Service (PAS) QuickNotes #95 on Urban Heat Resilience written by myself and Sara Meerow is now available! In this PAS QuickNotes we explain trends in increasing extreme heat risk, describe the concept of heat resilience, and provide an overview of heat mitigation and management strategies that communities can implement. This PAS QuickNotes serves as an introduction to the topic of urban heat resilience, which will be covered more fully in PAS Report: Planning for Urban Heat Resilience, to be published in the spring of 2022.

APA Members can download the PAS QuickNotes on Urban Heat Resilience for free, and it is available to non-members for $10.
