Hydroclimatic extremes such as floods and droughts affect all aspects of our lives and the environment, including energy, hydropower, agriculture, transportation, urban life, and human health and safety. For many geographic regions, climate projections indicate that the risk of increased flooding and/or more severe droughts will be higher in the future than today. On the other hand, the large uncertainty of projected hydroclimatic extremes makes it very challenging to design planning and management measures that would account for their trends. There is an increasing need for water researchers and practitioners to address these concerns.
This Special Issue calls for innovative manuscripts with a focus on projected hydroclimatic extremes and their impacts. Topic examples include the following:
- Uncertainty analysis/quantification of projected hydroclimatic variables
- Urban floods, droughts, and resiliency planning for extreme events
- Water supplies
- Effects of climate change on water quality
- Other (e.g., socioeconomic, demographic, regulatory, planning and management) aspects of projected floods and droughts

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 papers will be 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 monthly 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 1800 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.
