Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With global warming and the frequent occurrence of various forms of extreme weather, mankind is facing more challenges: floods, serious urban waterlogging, a lack of agricultural water, water pollution, serious haze and other problems have had adverse effects on human survival and life. These problems not only seriously affect personal life but also restrict the development of national economies and affect the global biological environment.

This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality research papers and critical reviews that are focused on (1) water resource planning and management innovations for emerging cities for the future, (2) water resource protection and water pollution management in new rural construction, (3) the optimal treatment and management of industrial wastewater (chemical wastewater and nuclear wastewater), (4) innovative flood disaster management, (5) greenhouse gas emission measures and management under carbon neutralization targets, (6) air pollution detection, control and management innovation. This Special Issue will collect a wide range of research views and achievements in relevant fields around the world, and provide readers with different views, theories and research data. It will provide a reference for individuals and management units who are responsible for water resource management and air pollution management.
