Green roofs in the national program “Moja woda” (“My Water”)

04/29/2021

As a result of the PSDZ petition, green roofs are included in the national program “Moja woda” (“My Water”) – as confirmation of the success of our efforts, the Polish Green Roofs Association received an official letter from the Minister of Climate and Environment.

“Moja woda” is a national government program that was opened in 2020 and the deadline for submitting applications is 30/06/2024. From this year, owners of private properties can apply for reimbursement of the costs of purchase, delivery and construction of rainwater retention systems on roofs (green roofs). The program aims to protect water resources and minimize drought in Poland by increasing the retention in private home gardens and the use of retained rainwater and snowmelt, including the development of green and blue infrastructure. The strategic goal of the program is to increase the level of protection against the effects of climate change and natural threats (in accordance with the directions of activities set out in the “Strategic Adaptation Plan for sectors and areas sensitive to climate change until 2020 with a perspective until 2030” and the National Environmental Policy 2030 – development strategy in the field of environment and water management).

This is the first national program in Poland that includes partial financing of green roofs.
