Renaturing Cities and Restoring the Natural Water Cycle Through Green Infrastructure

Investments in urban green infrastructure is the solution to extreme weather events, writes Luigi Petito for Living Architecture Monitor.

The good thing is that we have solutions to mitigate these extreme phenomena. One of these solutions is investment in urban green infrastructure. In cities we must and can restore the natural water cycle with existing technologies. We must renature densely populated areas with blue-green infrastructure on roofs, allowing water infiltration, rainwater harvesting, evapotranspiration, urban heat island effect mitigation and decentralised stormwater management.
