The changing physical and socio-economic climate is creating new risks worldwide. Some of these risks to human and natural system health may be foreseeable, and some may be unexpected. In an increasingly data-rich world, we have a better opportunity to understand and develop mitigation plans to address disaster risks. Successfully applying geospatial, physical, health, and climate data is critical to understanding the current state of these systems, and the way that future conditions will impact them. Already, increased drought and wildfire conditions, flooding, and stronger storms are leading to uncontrolled chemical release, water shortages, and infrastructure breakdown globally. The level of complexity of data intelligence and planning that is required can only be accomplished with collaboration among multiple sectors.
This Special Issue seeks research papers on aspects of new and emerging risks within a changing global system. We especially encourage the submission of inter-disciplinary and crosscutting research that considers cascading or cumulative risk. We also encourage the submission of manuscripts that are focused on policy or management solutions at multiple scales. We welcome original research on risk assessment, planning, or new understandings of environmental and health impacts of a changing world.
