Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies for Global Change provides a forum to review, analyze, and stimulate the development, testing, and implementation of mitigation and adaptation strategies at regional, national, and global scales, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set forth by the United Nations. The primary goals of this journal are to stimulate and facilitate cross-disciplinary dialogues, to contribute effectively to near real-time policy analysis and design, and to enhance the scientific underpinning of national and international programs, policies, collaborations, and agreements. 

Research published here may be rooted in one of a variety of disciplines, including environmental and climate sciences, energy and agricultural engineering, water studies, ecology, economics, human geography and social sciences, political science as well as ethics, though submission will have to offer integrated perspectives and analysis of concrete options for decision makers.

  • Addresses a wide range of timely environment, economic and energy topics
  • A forum to review, analyze and stimulate the development, testing and implementation of mitigation and adaptation strategies at regional, national and global scales

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
