Títol variant: Barriers and opportunities for urban agri-green roofs in Mediterranean compact cities
Data: 2021
Resum: The main objective of this study is to analyse the barriers and opportunities with regard to the implementation of urban agri-green roofs (UAGR) in cities. The case study was conducted in Barcelona, a Mediterranean compact city. The World Café methodology and a semi-quantitative analysis were used in this work. Five categories of barriers and opportunities were discussed (social, environmental, legal/administrative, technological/architectural, and economic) by interdisciplinary stakeholders. In total, 103 barriers and opportunities were identified. The main barriers identified were as follows: the lack of information and social cohesion regarding UAGR projects; the Mediterranean climate; the lack of specific regulations and protocols; and the initial investment, the pre-condition of the roof and its load bearing capacity. The main opportunities identified were as follows: social cohesion, improved life quality, new specific regulations, the profits derived from UAGR projects and aesthetic improvement. The UAGR's scale of impact results showed a homogeneous distribution between "building" and "city", while the "global" scale remains residual. Regarding the stage of the UAGR life cycle at which barriers and opportunities emerge, the results highlight how most opportunities appear during the "use" stage of the roof, whereas barriers do so during the "project" stage.
