The Mediterranean zones are characterized by a mild climate and scarce water resources that limit, for example, crop sustainability. Additionally, these areas in general tend to be highly energy dependent on fossil fuels, despite having abundant solar radiation and some wind resources. Therefore, the development of these areas causes an increase in the emission of greenhouse gases. This Special Issue aims to focus its attention on sustainability solutions specifically adapted to Mediterranean climatic conditions, both to productive sectors, such as forestry, agriculture or industry, and in consumer sectors, such as housing, for example, in terms of thermal comfort or alternative transportation in urban areas. However, we must not forget that any measure of sustainability has a legal support or even a political impulse, for this reason the cases of study in the application of legal regulations or political impulses to measures of sustainability in the Mediterranean climate are welcome. This Special Issue seeks contributions spanning a broad range of topics related, but are not limited to:
- Energy saving
- Thermal comfort
- Reduction of pollution
- Sustainable use of water resources in agriculture
- Desalinization and wastewater
- Sustainable use of forest resources
- Alternative transport
- Legal regulation of sustainability
- Sustainability policies
I believe that this Special Issue may help the sustainability in Mediterranean climate.
Thank you for your contributions.
