Green Roofs: A Resource Manual for Municipal Policy Makers
Green roofs are vegetated roof covers which can improve stormwater management, increase green space in dense urban areas and help reduce a building's contribution to the heat island effect. This Manual is an overview of international and Canadian green roof policies and programs. It features 12 jurisdictions that demonstrate leadership in green roof policy development, and shows how other Canadian and U.S. cities are developing supportive policies. By reviewing the reasons municipalities throughout the world have set green roof policies and programs, policy makers can better determine which policies suit their needs.
