Could green façades cool down cities in the future?

(Pensoft Publishers) Predictions for temperature rise and the particular sensitivity of urban ecosystems to heat stress pose a pressure to find the best solution for mitigation and adaptation to climate change. Could green façades be a sustainable and easy to implement strategy to keep our cities cool? A new study uses the method of Bayesian networks to assess the applicability of this nature-based solution, within the context of the urban environment of Berlin.
