Danang is a centre of not only economy but also education, culture, science and technology in the Central Region and one of the most developed and urbanized cities in Vietnam. The city, however, has to confront a big challenge that is the shortage of green space for a modern city. Under the pressure of population growth, the demand of land keeps increasing significantly for traffic, housing, etc., and it is directly proportional to the pressing demand of green space and environmental purification. Green roof technology, hence, can be considered as the most effective solution for developing more green space and save land for urbanization. Concurrently, this solution also contributes to protect drainage system, utilize rain and waste water, particularly absorbs CO2 to mitigate climate change impacts. Once applied, the green roof model is expected to promote Danang to become an environmentally friendly eco-city.
