September, 2018. CPAW researchers with Headwaters Economics have release a new, interactive Austin Wildfire and Vulnerable Populations Tool. The map and underlying data help land use planners, fire personnel, elected officials, and others identify neighborhoods in Austin, TX where overlapping wildfire threats and socioeconomic vulnerabilities may make people disproportionately susceptible to wildfire. The tool supports recommendations provided by CPAW in 2016 to the city of Austin.
