Natural Hazard Mitigation

Our natural hazard mitigation projects seek to foster hazard-resilient communities by (1) evaluating municipal planning and mapping practices in relation to flood hazards; (2) assessing the potential of neotraditional neighborhood design for reducing flood risks; (3) exploring alternative roles for municipal planners in promoting hazard mitigation in their jurisdictions.

Ongoing and completed projects focus on:

  • Natural hazard mitigation planning in Metro Vancouver
  • Flood hazard mapping in British Columbia
  • Flood hazard bylaws in British Columbia
  • New Urbanism and natural hazard mitigation in the United States
  • Planners’ roles in promoting natural hazard mitigation
