Abstract

Rapid urbanization made by deforestation has created a massive negative impact on our environment. Huge patch of green cover has been lost resulting in many flora, fauna and animals gone extinct. Climate change is also attributed to deforestation which has affected our socio-economic conditions. Increased cost of land in urban areas prohibits us from getting the green cover back in open spaces, hence turning roofs into greenery could be significant source of urban greenery and mitigate the issues related to urbanization. This paper presents the advantages, disadvantages, planning consideration, components of green roofs along with its holistic benefits.

Keywords: Urban Island Effect, Surface Water Runoff, Energy Efficiency, Biodiversity

Article published in International Journal of Current Engineering and Technology, Vol.8, No.6 (Nov/Dec 2018)
