Rural-urban interface (RUI, synonym of WUI, wildland-urban interface) are key areas in land management and planning for wildfire risk mitigation. A tool for RUI mapping was developed to help decision makers cope with risk management. Several methods for fire-risk assessment in RUI were developed, depending on the scale, the geographical context and data availability. Methods and tools were validated based on fire simulations and are now available. In addition, projections of future risk in RUI were obtained using land cover and climate change simulations.In the next four or five decades, mitigation of wildfire risk will depend on land managers capacity to control RUI development.
