More than ever, the need to manage natural resources in a way that can adequately address the needs of current generations, while maintaining their capacity to provide for future generations, has become apparent. Sustainable development requires integrated approaches that address environmental, economic, technological, institutional, and social issues in an inter- and intra-disciplinary approach. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a ground for scientific publications of theoretical and empirical analyses on the topic of integrated sustainable management of natural resources, which address technology, institutional, societal, economic and environmental concerns. The goal is to bridge economic and policy areas of resource management for sustainable development through high-profile publications, to be used and referenced in academic and policy networks. The Special Issue welcomes scientific articles that adopt a multidisciplinary approach to the integrated assessment and management approaches to natural resources, over time and space. Studies linked to Sustainable Development Goals 6, 7, 9, 13, 14 and 16 are particularly welcomed. Topics of research can be situated within policy frameworks and initiatives at global and/or EU level linked to the sustainable management of natural resources.
