Urban areas are considered to be the most vulnerable to water-related problems, which involve a lack of or excess of water problems from quantity and quality perspectives. These specific phenomena include flash floods and inundation, droughts and water shortage, surface and ground water pollution, tsunami and storm surges, landslides and mudflows, degradation of fluvial and aquatic ecosystems, unsanitary conditions and epidemics, among others. In urban areas, water-related problems cause immense human losses and economic damage. Water-related problems frequently reoccur in urban areas, and are intricately linked with each other, and they pose major obstacles to the achievement of human security and sustainable socio-economic development of cities. Thus, it is crucial that they are scientifically and comprehensively discussed, so that they can be better understood, in order to fight against and mitigate these problems.
For this Special Issue, published in Water, we intend to provide a wide range of topics and a collective perspective on urban water-related problems.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
