Environmental planning has become an indispensable tool in our current society. The complexity and dynamism of the processes of pollution or alteration of the territory are phenomena that require new, more comprehensive environmental policies and integrated and integrative approaches. This changing context forces administrations and researchers in this field to develop increasingly sophisticated and demanding frameworks. However, these actions must be carried out taking into account the increasingly multidisciplinary nature of these phenomena, and assuming the principle of reality that forces them to be socially and economically sustainable. This Special Issue seeks contributions involving innovative approaches or relevant case studies regarding environmental policy and management in topics such as:
- Sustainability frameworks linked to optimization of land and resources consumption;
- Socioecological approaches to solve environmental problems;
- Protected areas policy and management;
- Risk analysis derived from human anthropization of natural resources;
- Regulatory applications aimed at integrating environmental knowledge (e.g., EU INSPIRE Directive);
- Spatial analysis of diffuse pollution phenomena;
Innovative methodologies, frameworks or significant results from relevant case studies related to all these topics are welcome, but similar ones may also be considered for publication if they fit within the scope of this Special Issue.
