Special Issue in Climate: Sustainable Agriculture for Climate Change Adaptation
Everything, whether naturally-occurring or synthetic in nature, consists of chemical substances. Many of these substances, for example, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, detergents and food/feed additives, have contributed greatly to an increased quality of life and prosperity. However, some also have the potential to seriously damage human health, biodiversity and the environment. Consequently, the identification of chemical hazards, estimation of exposure, evaluation of the associated risks, and the introduction of management and control measures are all vital to ensure the health and safety of individuals and biodiversity as well as environmental quality. This Special Issue, therefore, focuses on chemical risk assessment, hazard identification, risk management and control, regulatory approaches and chemical risk assessment policy. We invite original, unpublished articles that describe recent advances in these disciplines and closely related areas.
