The consequences of climate change have already affected European urban areas, as numerous researches show that intense urbanization leads to degradation of natural habitats and reduction of biodiversity. Scientific findings on ecology and climatology, as well as global and national policies requires a shift of the planning process towards the development of urban adaptable ecosystems. In this article, we look at possibilities to apply green infrastructure as urban planning approach that provides polyvalent space for ecosystem services and human well-being. Focus of the research presented in this article are Block 45 and 70 in New Belgrade and Savamala neighborhood in the old city center. Even though they are characterized by different ecological, urban, morphological and social characteristics, they share direct contact with Sava River. Therefore, the adaptive potential of these spatial segments will be the subject of the analysis presented in this article, and the emphasis will be on... applying biophilic design within the integrated network of green infrastructure.
