The philosophy of all new stormwater management approaches such as Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) is to reduce the environmental effects of urbanization. Urbanization growth produces more impervious areas such as roads and roofs in metropolitan areas. Increasing imperviousness leads to removal of native vegetation in urban areas. It also leads to increased runoff volumes and peak flows which put more pressure on urban drainage systems. Green roofs, as WSUD systems, can cover the already available dense impermeable roof area and provide environmental, economic and social benefits. Despite such benefits, green roofs are relatively new in Australia and there are research gaps and practical barriers to apply the systems more widely. In this review paper, various studies from different climatic regions in Europe, North America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand were compared to understand how green roofs can be adapted to meet WSUD objectives in Australia. It was found that green roofs have been used as an important WSUD infrastructure around the world but that this technology is very much in its infancy in Australia. Furthermore, specific design criteria need to be developed for a range of Australian conditions to develop resilient green roofs.
