This Special Issue on “Sustainable Urbanism in the Context of Global and Regional Disruptions” aims to publish research outcomes that address the emerging themes related to recent environmental, social, and economic disruptions worldwide in both urbanised and urbanising regions. As the need for stronger self-reliance of cities in terms of food and energy is evident, papers that explore how that can be achieved, including the related environmental, social and cultural implications, are of interest. Papers on possible new theoretical, methodological, and practical approaches, including transdisciplinary collaborations, to the prevention of such events and remediation of their consequences are invited.
