West Wide Wildfire Risk Assessment

2013

The Council of Western State Foresters and the Western Forestry Leadership Coalition (WFLC) developed a wildfire risk assessment of all lands for the 17 western states and select Pacific Islands - known as the West Wide Wildfire Risk Assessment, or WWA.  Three sets of summary statistics were developed using the results of the WWA, including Regional Summary Statistics, State Summary Statistics, and County Risk Reports, as well as maps of wildfire risk demonstrating fire threat and that to key assets - downscaled to the county level.

Boise, Idaho - Boise's Climate Action Roadmap

2021

In 2021, the City of Boise, Idaho published Boise's Climate Action Roadmap, a plan to help the city and its communities become carbon neutral and build resilience and ability to adapt to the impacts of climate change. The plan includes seven categories for action that will help reach both emissions reduction and resilience goals: Buildings and Energy, Transportation, Consumption and Waste, Food Systems, Natural Environment, Water, and Innovation and Engagement. In advancing strategies within these climate action priorities, Boise will be operating under three guiding principles to advance equity, improve health and wellness, and grow a climate economy.
