The adaptation measure implemented by the Municipality of Strovolos is related to the greening of 1909m2 of unexploited public area at Georgiou Iona Street. Within the area, a botanical garden is created with plants highly harmonized in the natural environment of the area. The plants have been specifically selected due to their reduced irrigation needs and drought-resistant water requirements. The planting techniques which have been used aim at water retention at the level of plant rhizosphere. As regards irrigation water, a drilling has been constructed so as to ensure its availability. In addition, all pathways’ coatings are covered with water-permeable materials for the sufficient infiltration of rainwater. The plan also includes the construction of a fitness area which will produce energy through the use of fitness equipment.

Monitoring: The Municipality of Strovolos has installed an automatic station within the area which measures, every 10 min, air temperature, relative humidity, precipitation as well as infiltration. Real-time measurements as well as daily trend of these indicators can be found below.

Additionally, the municipality has installed a meteorological station nearby to compare air temperature and relative humidity from an abandoned area without any interventions (reference station). Data from the second non-automatic station can be found on data history.
