There is a vast body of literature examining the main drivers of sustainability. Obviously, the economic effects of energy and climate change mitigation and adaptation play a substantial role in any policy planning and effective management towards sustainability. Climate change involves many dimensions—scientific, economic, societal, and political, and it is a global problem, realized on local scales that will persist for many decades or even centuries. Although we are aware of climate change dimensions and problems, greenhouse gases (GHG) keep on growing. Apart from the agreements on facing and tackling the problem, a substantial response to climate change requires a joint approach of mitigation in reducing GHG emissions and aiming to stabilize the levels of heat-trapping GHGs into the atmosphere as well as adaptation to climate change that already exists. Although climate change is a global problem, it is also considered on a local scale, with cities and municipalities on the cutting edge of adaptation. In this Special Issue, we are seeking to address research questions including but not limited to costs and modelling of climate-change impacts, adaptation in the developed and developing world, the promotion of effective international technology cooperation, emissions from transport, progress in national adaptation planning, adaptation, innovation in climate change mitigation, progress in national adaptation planning, and assessment of climate change effects on a city (and port) scale.
