As economies and populations have continued to grow over time, so too has environmental pollution. Humans contribute every day to air, land, and water pollution. Decades of intensive use of the world’s stock of natural resources in developed countries to fuel economic development have resulted in global warming, loss of biodiversity and various negative impacts on ecosystems and human health. In recent years this tendency has also been reproduced in emerging and developing economies, but at a much faster rate, driven by population growth and rapidly changing resource-exploitation patterns towards levels typical of developed countries. Therefore, environmental pollution resulting from human activities has become one of the most concerning problems on a global scale because of the large number of regulated and unregulated pollutants that can affect environmental systems and human health. Innovative technologies for pollutant analysis and subsequent treatment are important tools for understanding and contrasting risks posed by human activities, and consequently are a prerequisite for preserving biodiversity and ecosystem services.
This Special Issue titled “Current and Future Strategies for Managing Environmental Pollution in Altered Ecosystems” encourages contributions from all around the world and welcomes original research papers or reviews covering all research areas related to environmental pollution, including (but not limited to):
- Environmental monitoring of air, land, and water pollution.
- Source, fate, and effect of environmental pollutants on ecosystems and implications for human health.
- Biomonitoring of environmental pollution.
- Human biomonitoring of environmental chemicals.
- New analytical methods for the monitoring of environmental pollutants.
- Statistical/mathematical modelling for human health and ecological effects of environmental pollutants.
- Remediation measures for polluted environments.
- Solutions to prevent and to mitigate the harmful effects of environmental pollutants on ecosystems and human health, and to improve the effectiveness of mitigation strategies.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
