Mapping the heat hazard is an important first step to understanding where to start addressing heat health issues in a city, but risk also involves exposure and vulnerability. This session will feature communities that have taken the next step after a UHI mapping program to factor in population, demographics, and health information to detail where the most at-risk residents live, to characterize their risk factors, and to guide appropriate interventions to manage those risks.
