Sustainable Urban Planning – the one in relation to the processes of planning, design and construction on a larger scale - mobility solutions, planning policy and planning issues, especially urban regeneration in order to create a low carbon environment.
Renovations of existing buildings and urban regions and modelling of the built environment to identify solutions to low carbon problems. Design of low carbon solutions for improvement of open public space as well as for retrofit the existing buildings.

Abstract: The present situation in Serbia according CO2 emissions and minimizing energy demands in urban built environment was presented, both at building and urban scale. It was consist of national context, EPBD implementation, planning  legislation and two case studies at building scale (example of built energy efficient house, and improvement of housing settlement) and two in urban scale (light metro – infrastructural case study and case study of Belgrade).

Abstract: In the paper the case of Serbia and its capital Belgrade was presented as well as complex relations between consequences of the previous and current political and economic situation, ecological problems caused by illegal and unplanned urbanization and possible methods and solutions that could improve the quality of life and decrease CO2 emission.

June 2011. Abstract: In this paper new types of urban structures which appeared in the urban landscape of Belgrade were identified and analyzed, as well as their problems and potentials caused by various strategic actions. The discrepancy between visions and their implementation has been examined through several key elements - quality of living environment, possibilities for renewal/remodelling/ upgrading,  urban connectivity/mobility and energy efficiency.

Abstract: This article offers an insight into the current state of the environment in the EU and in Serbia, and emphasizes differences between Serbian and EU practice. The analysis presents important international and national documents, regional and local strategies, laws and standards, as well as a review of individual initiatives, visions and solutions that could be used as guidelines and examples for practice in Serbia.

(pp. 253-262) ISBN 978-99955-667-7-7 Abstract: The subject of this paper is to consider the possibility of recycling industrial zone which would be the milestone for initiating regeneration of the coast. Different examples of regeneration are presented, their positive and negative implications, as well as their possible implementation on the Belgrades` waterfront. The result of this research is establishment the guidelines and recommendations for future work on regeneration of the Belgrades` waterfront according the sustainable planning .

In the last two decades, the number of private car users in Belgrade evidently increased, as opposed to the number of users of environmental friendly modes of transport. The purpose of this paper is to present an overview of approaches for improving the physical aspect of the open public spaces, which aim to increase the number of users of climate friendly modes of transport, with a focus on walking. The contribution of the study is in combining different research methods. Interpretation of results forms the basis for directing future research and campaigns on topics of climate friendly modes of transport in urban areas.
