Human-centred And Nature-based Approaches In Cities


Urban centers are drivers of global warming, because they concentrate transportation, industries, households and many of the emitters of greenhouse gases (GHG). Cities are at the center of the climate change challenge. The impact of urbanization on climate is likely to increase given future urban population and economic growth trends. With more than half of the world’s population living in urban areas and an increased percentage in the future, urban areas make up the greatest concentration of climate vulnerable people and infrastructure. Sustainable development Goals by 2030, are also focusing on Sustainable cities and communities, in particular creating safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems. The methodology approach in this scientific paper focuses on defining the measures for sustainable development transportation, sustainable urban mobility plan in Skopje, analysis of development of plan for improvement of bike lanes in Skopje, boulevard relocation for cycling, sustainable development of the public transport, road space relocation of public transport, electro-mobility, as well as, overcoming urban capacity challenges and creating urban adaptation planning that will be factor for sustainable development in the City of Skopje. The expected outcome results in this scientific paper is creating sustainable transport, urban adaptation planning that will contribute on the complexity of the city of Skopje: transport, energy supply, buildings, energy demand, low-carbon technologies. Effective adaptation and mitigation planning demands clear metrics of success, a protocol to identify and construct policy levers, and tools for enhancing social and ecological capacities. Conceptualizing urban areas as sets of intersecting systems provides the basis to study the structure and organization of urban systems.
