The complexity and growing risks of natural hazards require an interdisciplinary approach to manage environmental threats, including unique strategies for hazard preparedness, mitigation, planning and management. Global climate change is a growing hazard, and specific tools are needed to lower greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate the extent of climate change, and adapt to global temperature rise. This Special Issue is seeking original, unpublished papers that describe recent advances in various environmental hazard and threat issues in relation to a cross-cutting, interdisciplinary perspective. While a technical perspective is welcome, a systems approach is encouraged to promote state-of-the-art solutions that can address environmental risk at local, national, or global scales.
