The historic 2016 climate change pact at the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Paris, France illustrates the growing concern about how climate change will increase environmental risk and societal welfare. The complexity of climate change requires a cross-cutting interdisciplinary systems approach to manage environmental risk, including strategies 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 This Special Issue is seeking original, unpublished papers that describe recent advances in various environmental risk issues in relation to climate shifts. While a technical perspective is welcome, an interdisciplinary, systems approach is encouraged to promote state-of-the-art solutions that can address climate change risk at local, national, or global scales.
