Sustainable Development of Mountain Resorts - Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Options and Necessity for Replanning in Serbian Mountains

An integrated approach in spatial and environmental planning in European countries is one of the leading principles when it comes to development strategies. The approach is embedded in the institutional-organizational models that strive to coordinate multiple roles of planning (economic, environmental and social) and to approach closer to the territorial cohesion, particularly on vulnerable territories such as mountains and nature protected areas. The Alpine region is one of the most comprehensively analysed mountain areas in Europe, including research topics such as mountain resorts in a context of climate change and nature preservation. Following this context, the poster aims to present several tourism resorts positioned in nature protected areas of Serbia. A trajectory of their development through time will be considered in light of their relation to climate change: climate change impact on tourism resorts, but also mitigation and adaptation measures taken in order to decrease deve...lopment impacts on the environment through replanning activities. It is also expected to accentuate the way planning for mountain areas aims to consolidate conflicts between development and environmental protection/preservation, and how far planers have succeeded in it using legislative and spatial plans as tools. In conclusion, the analysis of few mountain tourism centres of national and international importance (e.g. Kopaonik, Stara Planina, Brezovica) will showcase recommendations for improved balancing between development and preservation according to international norms (e.g. IUCN), understanding on capacities of a particular space and an extent to which the capacities should be used in order to provide not only tourism development but also decent life quality for the local population.
