In most countries, global warming or climate change has become an inevitable reality because we have suffered from tremendous serious disasters (e.g., flood, drought, groundwater depletion, water quality deterioration, ecological disturbance, etc.) resulted from inoccasionally-extreme meteorological events. Despite global efforts on the mitigation and adaptation of climate change impacts, all social, economic, environmental and ecological damages have been increasing, even in recent years. Before the implementation of any adaptive measures, it is definitely required to analyze the quantitative impacts of climate change on hydrology, water quality and ecology in both global and regional scales, as well as to precisely forecast the future climate conditions. Thus, the careful scrutiny on climate change impact can result in the selection of effective mitigation and adaptation measures.
This Special Issue will show the state-of-the-art techniques and various global applications for the impacts of climate change on flood, drought, groundwater vulnerability, water quality and ecology in a global and regional scales based on historical climate data and various climate change scenarios. Although, there have been plenty of articles on this theme for the past several decades, it should be continuously studied due to its importance. Furthermore, comprehensive review on this issue can be very helpful to all interested researchers in the world.
Now, we invite any researchers to contribute your recent research manuscripts, as well as review articles.

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 papers will be 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 monthly 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 1400 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.
