  • Abstract The concept of sustainable development has become a central focus for many disciplines and particularly for urban planning in the last two decades. Sustainable urbanization is a process towards a goal. Achieving the goal of sustainability engages the responsibility of both urban planners and those who are involved in the development of cities, and supposes the existence of a multidimensional system within which environmental, social and economic factors are interrelated and complementary.
    The objective of this study is to develop an indicator system for sustainable urban planning. The study reviews several concepts and uses a methodological approach to develop a matrix for sustainable urban planning indicators and sub indicators within the three areas of concern. As a result, the thesis provides a system for sustainable urban planning indicators and sub indicators, including guidance and measurement techniques for each indicator. It also proposes pathways for urban planners for ¡§how¡¨ and ¡§what¡¨ urban planners could do to address the problem of planning sustainability.
