Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Humans live in changing climates with rapidly altered conditions that trigger more frequent and intense emergencies, across the spectrum and on variable spatial and temporal scales. Addressing the root causes of climate change remains a top priority for the long-term sustainability of life on Earth; it is equally important to tackle acute and sub-chronic impacts of climate change to prepare impacted communities and reduce the burden of life quality and disease. In this Special Issue, we invite original research, short communications, perspectives, and review manuscripts on the intersection of climate change, sustainability, resilience, human health, and preparedness exploring the interplay between the climate and physical and human environments, today and in the future, as well as responses and actions.
