Need for greenery analysis
Using green infrastructure in Creating a city resilient to climate change
Preventing extreme weather events, such as stormwater or long periods of drought, is an increasingly important element of shaping the urban microclimate.
Cities are 60 – 90% imperviousness
Our studies based on the analysis of satellite data and artificial intelligence algorithms will allow for the precise indication of places where urban greenery will bring the most benefits, pointing need for the introduction or densification of green urban infrastructure and carefully planning the strategy of sustainable growth in the city and relieve grey infrastructure, allowing for more efficient functioning during intense precipitation or heat waves combined with long-term droughts
Reduction of pollution (air, water, soil, noise) in cities
Improving the quality of urban spaces
Reduction effects of the Urban Heat Island phenomenon (UHI)
Increase in biodiversity
