Pre-feasibility study for green roofs, green facades and de-sealing of surfaces

Potential climate/ disaster impacts addressed by approach & Justification for approach:

Climate monitoring and assessment show that extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and intense in Montenegro. The city of Podgorica is particularly exposed to heatwaves and urban biodiversity is being significantly impacted, which hampers its capacity to provide ecosystem services. Green roofs have been identified as a relevant measure against the heat island effect that would support the city's Climate Adaptation Strategy and Biodiversity Action Plan. Combining this measure with green facades, painting roofs and facades with light colours and de-sealing surfaces is another urban adaptation option.

Process of Implementation:

After shortlisting the city, the Gap Fund conducted a detailed assessment taht was approved by the TS. The team prepared a ToR with the city and later on, the TA was implemented and supervised by the GF team. Throughout the process, all relevant stakeholders were engaged.
