The popularity of developing mega projects is increasing around the world, with the predicted global mega project market being worth USD 6–9 trillion annually. Sustainability is an important concern for mega project stakeholders. The delivery of mega projects, not only significantly impacts socio-economic development (e.g., public health, resettlement), but also profoundly influences the natural environment, such as biodiversity and ecological process. As such, the sustainability issue of mega projects should be treated differently from conventional projects, given their distinct roles in socio-economic development, as well as their large-scale characteristics.
The primary aim of this Special Issue is to uncover the nature of mega projects’ sustainability by soliciting theoretical, methodological, and empirical studies. It contributes significantly to the understanding of the sustainability issue of mega projects, which facilitates their management and improvement of performance. This Special Issue welcomes papers that are associated with all aspects of “Sustainable Development and Management of Mega Projects”.Assoc. Prof. Peng Wu
