One of major pillars in sustainability is economic dimension. In that dimension, economic development is pursued in a manner that preserves the environment and resources for our next generations. Also, that sustainable economic development requires highest efficiency which can be achieved by using various mathematical or meta-heuristic optimization techniques.
This Special Issue intends to put together the newest studies in both theoretical and practical fields of optimization techniques for sustainable economic development including energy, water, food, and the environment issues.
