With the continuous advancement of urbanization, the workload of urban planning and management has increased rapidly. Large-scale enclosures brought about by traditional planning and management methods have damaged cultural heritage. The creation of urban–rural integration, etc., can no longer meet the needs of urban development, but hinders the sustainable development of cities. Urbanization requires scientific urban planning. In order to strengthen effective urban planning, science and technology must be reasonably applied. We welcome scholars of urban and rural planning to apply artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, geographic information systems, telemetry, and mathematical models to analyse urban and rural issues. This Special Issue discusses the roles of various actors and elements in urban–rural environments in terms of the space, form, and process development. Urban–rural relations are a highly dynamic and thought-provoking development topic. The journal is dedicated to analysing urban and rural issues from a scientific perspective. Research proposals should focus on analysing urban and rural environment design, its implementation, and its effects, particularly investigation into urban and rural environments with different spatial backgrounds (e.g., countries, cities, and communities). Potential topics to be discussed in this issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Agriculture and Deforestation;
- Air and Water Quality;
- Application of geographic information technology and regional development;
- Biodiversity Loss;
- Building and urban regeneration;
- Comprehensive land remediation and rural construction plans;
- Ecological Development of Industries;
- Environmental monitoring and modelling;
- Floods or Droughts;
- Food Waste and Food Security;
- Human–environment system coupling and sustainable development;
- Industrialization development of ecological resources and environment;
- Plastic Pollution;
- Regional economic development and sustainability
- Rural restructuring and land use transformation;
- Soil science;
- Sustainable agriculture
- Theories and methods of industrial clustering;
- Water conservation;
- Water ecological security pattern;
- Water resource endowment;
- Urban and rural spatial quality improvement.
