Call for paper of special issue “The role of Geography in a changing environment”

Full title: The role of Geography in a changing environment

Short title: Geography and global changes

Summary of issue:

The world is changing at an accelerating pace with relevant consequences to sustainability. As a discipline that encompasses natural and social sciences, geography has the advantage of enabling the study of environmental changes, and there are great opportunities for geographers to participate in sustainability research. The recent advancement of geography and its methodologies and technologies will provide a more profound understanding of these changes. Geographers have, thus, the responsibility of promoting the discipline as a strategic pathway for carrying natural and social sciences towards sustainability. This depends on understanding the processes in the natural and social systems and their mutual feedback and clarifying the relationships between the structures, functional characteristics and interactions in the human-environmental systems at multiple scales.

In this Special Issue, we invite geographers and other social and physical researchers to submit original research that contributes to a better understanding of the changes taking place and solutions that enhance ecological and socio-economic sustainability, showing the different perspectives and challenges we face in the 21st century.
