Urban heat island effect and run-off from impermeable urban surfaces are predicted to increase due to climate change. Loss of natural areas in the city has resulted in a losss of biodiversity and lost opportunities for ecosystem-based adaptation.

The Green Roof Pilot Project commenced in 2008 and is ongoing. The roof is vegetated with locally indigenous species to attract biodiversity. The temperature reduction and storm water attenuation benefits of the roof are being monitored and this knowledge is being used to promote the usage of green roof technologies throughout Durban through the development of a green-roof guideline document.
