Dr Andrew Speak

Green roofs and air pollution.

Urban vegetation is increasingly being recognised as an adaptation method for cities prone to the predicted effects of climate change such as increased temperatures, increased air pollution and a higher incidence of high precipitation events. Space is at a premium in cities, however, so an ideal place to implement urban greening programmes is on rooftops, which can constitute up to 35% of the urban area.
