Additionally, to help design effective incentive mechanisms able to significantly leverage the large-scale develpment of such systems.

STRATEGY

To enhance cost-benefit analysis of green roofs and green walls and develop a comprehensive and systematic model for balancing environmental, economic and social benefits of green roofs and walls with the underlying extra costs, in a life cycle perspective.
