Can green roofs help with stormwater floods?

The short answer would be “not without widespread application” and “not alone”.

“..in order to reduce the impact of climate change, we need extraordinary measures and big paradigm shifts, rather than small and incremental changes (Hölscher et al., 2018)”

In our new paper, we investigated the effect of implementing #greenroofs on reducing stormwater runoff to provide evidence-based knowledge to guide decision-makers and stakeholders. You can read our findings here.
