Aims and Scope: Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change

The Earth's biosphere is being transformed by various anthropogenic activities. Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change addresses a wide range of environment, economic and energy topics and timely issues including global climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion, acid deposition, eutrophication of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, species extinction and loss of biological diversity, deforestation and forest degradation, desertification, soil resource degradation, land-use change, sea level rise, destruction of coastal zones, depletion of fresh water and marine fisheries, loss of wetlands and riparian zones and hazardous waste management.

Response options to mitigate these threats or to adapt to changing environs are needed to ensure a sustainable biosphere for all forms of life. To that end, Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change provides a forum to encourage the conceptualization, critical examination and debate regarding response options. The aim of this journal is to provide a forum to review, analyze and stimulate the development, testing and implementation of mitigation and adaptation strategies at regional, national and global scales. One of the primary goals of this journal is to contribute to real-time policy analysis and development as national and international policies and agreements are discussed and promulgated.

Examples of topics published by this journal covering mitigation and adaptation strategies include: emerging environmental and energy technologies, restoration and reclamation ecology, sustainable development, bioengineering applications, environment and energy economics, integrated systems/resource planning and development, international treaties and agreements, environmental services, clean energy technologies and practices, valuation and equity, policy analysis and development, carbon capture and sequestration, mitigation policies and measures, alternative infrastructure and transportation systems, sustainable economic development, pollution prevention, and protection of human health and well-being.

The journal is necessarily transdisciplinary in scope and welcomes full papers, short communications, books reviews, and occasionally reviews of complex, novel or emerging mitigation and adaptation strategies. Special Issues of Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change are frequently developed by guest authors on complex topics of current interest. All papers are subject to thorough peer-review. Prompt publication is a priority consistent with a high standard of quality and presentation.
