[Sustainability] - Special Issue "Environmental Policy for Sustainability

Tuesday, 22 May 2018 12:20

The journal Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050; IF 1.789) is currently running a Special Issue entitled "Environmental Policy for Sustainability".

Dr. Julia Martínez-Fernández and Dr. Miguel Angel Esteve-Selma (University of Murcia, Spain) are serving as Guest Editors for this issue. We think you could make an excellent contribution, based on your expertise.

The present Special Issue will focus on environmental policies and how and they can improve overall sustainability at different scales, from global to local. Environmental policies, explicitly conceived to address different environmental problems, are generally considered a way to advance sustainability. However, relationships between environmental policies and sustainability goals have also evolved, as have related frameworks, methods, practical experiences, and open challenges. One key aspect of such an evolution has been the increasing need for an integrated approach over many different aspects. [...]
