Description

An investigation was carried out into the process involved in designing and building affordable community-driven vertical greening systems (VGS) prototypes in a low-income neighbourhood of Lagos, Nigeria. Prototypes are intended to improve indoor thermal comfort conditions and potentially provide substrate to grow edible and medicinal plants. Data, relating to 2 prototypes built in 2014 and their evaluation, comprises:
the narrative / information about community participation in the design and construction of the 2 prototypes;
the monitoring procedure used to collect thermal performance data;
the analysis of the data collected on thermal performance;
the community acceptability survey related to the prototypes.
A summary is provided of a community-acceptability survey undertaken following a second round of 2 prototypes, built in the same neighbourhood in the year 2016.

Research restults based upon these data are published at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.buildenv.2018.01.022
