Special Issue Information
This is a call for papers on the topic of “Advances in Environmental Management and Climate Change”, which has been designed in order to provide stakeholders and decision-makers with guidelines to proactively address the challenges of climate change. The ongoing global warming crisis has been driving a wide range of impacts and natural disasters that are significantly challenging environmental systems worldwide. Furthermore, in the upcoming decades, it is projected that the magnitude and frequency of extreme events (namely, droughts, flash floods, heat waves, soil erosion, crop destruction and forest fires) will tend to increase due to climate change. Hence, the implementation of timely and effective environmental management strategies is critical to respond to climate change.
In this Special Issue, we invite submissions exploring innovation and originality in design, methods and applications that focus on advanced methodologies in environmental management, such as impact and risk assessments that are relevant responses to climate change impacts.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Nature-based solutions to face climate change;
- Ecosystem services in the context of climate change;
- Environmental resource management towards climate resiliency;
- Water management and challenges under changing climates;
- Climate-smart agricultural and forestry practices and options;
- Disaster risk reduction and management.
