In recent years, environmental changes and rapid economic growth have increased the frequency and intensity of disasters, such as COVID-19, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc. Effective disaster risk management contributes to sustainable development. Strengthening research on disaster patterns, causes, and effects plays an important role in improving disaster risk management and environmental sustainability.
The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 (SFDRR) states to develop, update and disseminate location-based disaster risk information to decision-makers, the general public, and communities at risk based on geospatial information technology, social sensing, and artificial intelligence. Furthermore, we need to understand, predict, and assess disaster risks to reduce disaster loss and prevent future damage to a community, and create a stronger and more resilient environment.
This special issue aims to challenge how to comprehensively utilize geoinformatics, remote sensing, spatial statistics, and geospatial artificial intelligence (GeoAI) to improve disaster risk management and environmental sustainability, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
(1) GeoAI in disaster risk identification, extraction, and assessment
(2) Intelligent networking and social media in disasters
(3) Statistical analysis and risk mapping
(4) New applications of extended reality (XR) in disasters
(5) Virtual Geographic Environments (VGEs) and disaster multi-dimensional representation
(6) Disaster education and risk communication
(7) Disaster intelligent prediction and scenario simulation
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
