6th International Scientific Conference – EMAN 2022 – Economics and Management: How to Cope With Disrupted Times, Ljubljana, Slovenia, March 24, 2022, CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS, published by: Association of Economists and Managers of the Balkans, Belgrade, Serbia; ISBN 978-86-80194-57-8, ISSN 2683-4510


With the rapid development of industrialisation and urbanisa­tion, many problems and challenges are encountered in urban development. Constructing a scientific and reasonable index system to evaluate the per­formance of urban sustainability is of great significance to comprehensively improving urban life and growth. This study innovatively built the theoreti­cal framework for the “four-dimensional interactive structure” of sustainable urban development and, combined with the principle of index system con­struction, established the evaluation index system with four subsystems: en­vironment, economy, society, and science and technology. This lays a foun­dation for the follow-up empirical analysis and research
