Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue “Environmental Security: Climate Change and Prospects for Sustainable Development Goals” calls for papers around environmental security in the wake of climate change and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Global warming is regarded as the greatest threat facing mankind. Subsequent climate change and the associated environmental challenges, such as rising sea levels, depletion of natural resources, scarcity of fresh water supplies, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, and natural disasters including floods, hurricanes, droughts, and wildfires, have wide-ranging ramifications for societies across the world, especially in developing countries. This Special Issue aims to cover the broader dimensions of environmental security in the wake of global warming and climate change, and the role of SDGs. Papers are invited on topics including but not limiting to environmental security, global warming, implications of climate change, ecology and biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions, rising sea level, mitigation measures, SDGs, environmental protocols, Paris Agreement, lifecycle analysis, sustainable development, renewable energy, and low carbon technologies. Papers on these topics can be diverse in scope (e.g., scientific advancement and technology innovation, policy development, and implementation, industrial and commercial practices, and case studies).
