Case Studies: Living Green for Climate Change

Tackling the root causes and effects of climate change in order to build more liveable and resilient cities.

Living Green solutions such as street trees, green roofs and walls, and parks and gardens, all contribute to moderating the impacts of climate change. In solving problems such as the urban heat island effect and poor local air quality, nature-based-solutions deliver quantifiable cash value to city authorities as well as enhancing the quality of life for citizens.

These three cases were finalists for the ‘Living Green for Climate Change’ category in the 2022 edition of the AIPH World Green City Awards. The winner was Mexico City, Mexico.
