Special Issue Information
On 15 August 2005, the Secretary of Zhejiang Provincial Party Committee, Xi Jinping, first made the scientific conclusion that “Lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets” (the “Two Mountains” concept), a creative explanation of the unity of opposites relationship between economic development and environmental protection. Over the past 17 years, the concept of "Two Mountains" has profoundly changed China and deeply connected with the world. After being tested both in practice and theory, it has increasingly shown the great power of truth and become a theoretical and practical guide for green development in the new era.
This Special Issue intends to deeply understand and analyze the relationship between human socioeconomic activities and natural resources such as forests. We encourage the submission of studies from all scientific fields, including methodological approaches and empirical and case studies, to advance scientific knowledge and promote better public policy making and public awareness. We encourage studies at multiple levels (international, national, regional, community, and individual) as well as those considering spatiotemporal concerns. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary investigations are particularly welcome.
