Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is devoted to sustainable environment and water resource management in various research fields. Now is the time to address the world’s pressing water and environmental issues as we aspire to achieve more significant sustainable development for the good of the future. As part of our commitment to sustainability, the University of Nottingham Malaysia organised the 1st International Conference on Water and Environment for Sustainability in collaboration with the Malaysia Chapters of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) and the International Association for Coastal Reservoir Research (IACRR). The conference took place from 7 to 9 December 2022 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Malaysia, concurrently with ASIAWATER 2022, the region’s leading international water and wastewater event in Asia.

Alongside “Towards Sustainable Water and Environment Management for the Future” as the theme, this international conference provided the essential platform for scientists, researchers, engineers, industry players, managers, and policymakers to engage, share and exchange the latest scientific knowledge, management approaches, and engineering solutions on water and environment in support of the adoption of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Sustainable management of global water and environment issues is fundamental for the achievements of all SDGs that can positively impact our world and provide a better future for all, including the improvement to the quality of life. Therefore, this Special Issue is welcoming all experts and will be provided the opportunity to share recent scientific knowledge, management approaches, and engineering solutions from different backgrounds of water and environmental related academia, research institutions, industry companies, non-government organisations, and government agencies.
