Special Issue "Impacts of Climate Change on Sustainable Agricultural Development"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 November 2020.
Interests: sustainable agriculture; climate change adaptation; ecosystem management; biodiversity; rural communities
Sustainable agricultural development is an essential step for achieving Goal 2 (end hunger) of the Sustainable Development Goals under the United Nations 2030 Agenda. Sustainable agriculture can include different approaches that aim to reduce the current impacts of agriculture on the planet while ensuring food security. It may include, but not be limited to, conservation agriculture, agroecology, and ecological engineering. Sustainable agroecosystems promote resilience, biodiversity, and spatial heterogeneity, not only in the field but also at the landscape level. Under climate change, such systems will become even more crucial. However, we still need to understand how and what approaches will be the most effective under the current scenarios of climate change. This Special Issue aims to examine these aspects, looking at the impacts of climate change on sustainable agriculture development from different geographical points of view. I would like to invite you to submit an original manuscript that can contribute to better understanding these challenges and what strategies may be effective in the long term for the sustainability of our agricultural world.
