Abstract

The objective of this literature review is to understand the potential benefits of green roofs, walls and façades within the public and private realm in Melbourne and the value associated with these. It aims to: • Synthesise the latest research about the benefits of green roofs, walls and façades in Melbourne or where local data is not available, in comparable climates and urban conditions. • Quantify the benefits economically where data exists and identify information gaps and future research needs where local data is needed. • Prioritise a list of indicators that reflect the benefits of green infrastructure which the City of Melbourne can use to rank projects.
