Green infrastructure in urban environments of world’s large cities is becoming an important factor in adapting to climate change e.g., in the form of green walls or green roofs. However, it is important to note that positive effect in the urban climate can be achieved also by the application and combination of multiple green infrastructure elements. Finding suitable strategies to plant greenery in very dense urban areas is not only a problem of today, but also a challenge for the future sustainable cities and their resilience to the climate changes.
The implementation of green walls to the urban green infrastructure brings not only benefits but also a number of potential challenges that are not always taken into account in advance. The article presents the rationalization scheme for stakeholders that can affect their decision-making in a suitable way. The development of the rationalization scheme was preceded by its validation in previous research and through application in practice.
