Facing the multiplying challenges generated by contemporary processes, cities continuously redefine their physical and functional structure in order to improve their performances. The concept of smart city, targeting efficiency, liveability and sustainability of urban systems, has become one of preferred options for urban development based on the benefits of the latest technologies. However, the diversity of local circumstances often questions universal 'smartness' and applicability of the general model, demanding continuous modifications and high level of flexibility. Considering the environmental, socio-economic and technological elements of urban setting of Belgrade (Serbia), this paper will analyze the current state of 'smart' upgrading and suggest possibilities for its improvement, especially in the context of detected climate shift. The theoretical background of the problem, as well as the successful global examples, will be used as a starting point - both for the evaluation of the existing condition and the proposed guidelines for the 'smart' development.
