Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Climate change and/or the climate vagaries increasingly manifest themselves in increasingly frequent extreme events that hinder the functioning of societies and expose individuals to extremely stressful situations that endanger the quality of life, way of life and even the lives of the societies exposed to them.
This Special Issue aims to discuss the extent to which local and regional societies are exposed to extreme events and are affected by climate change, either by droughts, famines, floods, sea level rise, forest fires, etc., and how they develop and implement strategies to mitigate or adapt to those extreme situations.
We encourage the submission of research and review papers on the several interventional levels possible, from the political and legal framework level to the strategic, methodological and action implementation level.
Prof. Dr. António Dinis Ferreira
