Topic 2 The Role of Local Authorities in Sustainable Development

  • The most important role of municipalities in the sustainability of green roofs is to raise public awareness, exchange knowledge about the positive benefits of installing and maintaining green roofs, and actively participate in the maintenance and care of green roofs. It is very crucial to discuss with the public the important role of green roofs in reducing carbon emissions in cities.
  • Green roofs will be the key to greener cities in the future. Growing concerns about climate change and carbon emissions continue to escalate, prompting local authorities to take action to prevent further environmental disasters.
  • Local authorities can support local gardening community network.
  • Placement of green-roof on residential buildings is very strategic because of the function and ease of access to carry out activities in productive green areas in the occupied housing.
