Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues:

This Special Issue of Resources focuses on “Global Economic Development: Environment and Resources”. Climate change and global warming issues are receiving more attention today from business leaders, policy-makers, and the general public. Limiting global warming below 2 degrees Celsius by 2050 compared to the industrial revolution era might necessitate transitioning to a resource-constrained but prosperous economy in which both developed and developing countries need to manage their resources more efficiently and effectively. This Special Issue aims to examine both theoretical & conceptual challenges and empirical & case studies in resource and environmental management in developing and developed countries. Of particular interest are examples and case studies of circular economy, sustainable business practices, green supply chain applications, design for the environment (DfE) applications and case studies, resource-management-oriented social enterprises, and progress in Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in developing and developed countries. Theoretical, as well as applied, topics in sustainable development with a focus on environmental and resource management are also welcome.

Since the eighties, the concern for sustainability has been increasing from several dimensions and depending on different socio-economic, political, geographical and cultural factors. In the last few years, local development has incorporated the concept of sustainability, as part of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals strategy, highlighting the relevance of this process. The purpose of this research is to show the state of the art of this subject, for what a bibliometric analysis has been carried out based on the two most important online databases: Web of Science and Scopus. This article identifies the latest trends that characterize the concept of sustainable local development, where resilience is the new perspective to include in the variables that influence the development of territories. The results show a positive trend in this field of research, with both the number of articles published and citations increasing exponentially in the last ten years. In addition, the analysis of keywords has shown a tendency towards terms such as resilience, rural tourism or ecological agriculture. In essence, the concept has reached such a point that it is necessary to establish new mechanisms that soften and even negate the economic disruption caused by globalization. Full article
