Special Issue "Sustainability and Continuity of Governing Earth System, Climate Change and Disaster Resilience"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: institutions and institutional architecture of risk reduction and climate resilience; pre- and post-disaster governance network; climate change adaptation; food security; early warning systems
This Special Issue aims to cover issues around the question of how policies and strategies can be designed to take advantage of global commitments in governing climate change and development in the lights of Paris Agreement, Sendai Framework for Disaster Reduction 2030 and Sustainable Development Goals 2030. We are also interested in identifying lessons, methods, tools, approaches, and insights into experimental policy making and institutional design for climate change resilience from around the world. The issue will also cover policy making, institutional design, and architecture of earth system and climate change governance. This edition also welcomes lessons from and reflection on various global and local initiatives of urban climate change adaptation and risk reduction. Lessons from nongovernmental and civil society networks as well as governmental initiatives in managing local environmental change, including carbon management, are also welcome.
