Most building roofs in India are flat, and this is ideal for having green roofs. Green roofing the buildings has many advantages:

  • Decreases the temperature of the building, and the surroundings
  • Puts less pressure in the drainage system; especially useful in towns like Cuttack which do not have proper drainage systems.
  • More space for planting

Overall, it is good for the environment.

Here I will collect links on Greenroofing and use it to encourage my friends and family to have green roofs in their homes and buildings in Orissa. I hope the Government of Orissa and some of the city authorities will aso encourage this in Orissa and its cities and towns.
