Special Issue "Sustainable Water Management Strategies: Climate Change Induced Disaster Risk Reduction"

Call for articles for the Special Issue "Sustainable Water Management Strategies: Climate Change Induced Disaster Risk Reduction" of the journal Water. Are you an expert in this field and interested in contributing to this special issue?

Climate change is posing new and grand challenges to water managers. As uncertainty and variability will increase, weather patterns will change, and extreme weather events will occur more frequently, how do we develop and implement sustainable management strategies? How do we reduce the impact of expected and unexpected events? How do we prepare citizens and societies for changes in their environment? How do we develop adaptive policies, take robust measures, and improve the resilience of the water system, its institutional arrangements, and societies if measures fail?

These questions will be addressed in a Special Issue focusing on reducing the risks of climate change induced disasters. Papers explicating the wealth of methods and approaches for assessing climate impacts, and for developing adaptation strategies and preparing societies for the future, are solicited. Practical applications and case studies are sought for explicitly.
