Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Regional development is an important branch of geographical science, which intersects geography, economics, and sociology. It contains multiple aspects of socioeconomics, such as economic growth, resource allocation, industrial structure, social welfare, regional planning, etc. With the increased focus on environmental and social problems, the United Nations has proposed 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The emergency of balancing regional development and sustainability has become an important issue.

To this end, we invite the Section Editorial Board Members to preside over the collection series of Regional Sustainable Development. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Sustainable urban development;
  • Sustainable rural development;
  • Urban planning;
  • Urban governance;
  • Regional development policy;
  • Green economy;
  • Circular economy;
  • Regional industrial transfer;
  • Community management;
  • Social well-being;
  • Ecosystem services.
