Landscape architects are experts in adapting to climate change. They shape the climate - with green open spaces for fresh and cool air, infiltration areas, green roofs and facades, biotopes and renaturation.

Green infrastructure also relates to ecology and biodiversity. Landscape architects develop networked regional green systems in areas with high agricultural use.
