 The environment is a matter of urgent concern to individuals, communities, and nations. Issues of concern range from local particle pollution to climate change. Since the environmental quality evolves over time, and economic agents are forward looking, and pollution stocks decay slowly, dynamic games provide the right tools for analysis of environmental issues. In order to provide an impetus to research efforts on dynamic issues of competition and cooperation in environmental management, we are seeking contributions to a special issue of Dynamic Games and Applications, with exclusive focus on the environment. 
 
We welcome contributions involving dynamic analysis of interactive agents. The possible approaches include noncooperative differential games, dynamic cooperative games, mean field games, robust optimization and evolutionary games. Most importantly, we seek articles with serious theoretical contributions and original contributions in mathematical and computational economics. 
 
Articles based solely on data analysis or numerical experiments will be turned down. 
 
Some topics of interest:
• International environmental agreements: Entry and exit decisions.
• Biodiversity conservation and free-riding issues.
• Pollution control: spatial aspects.
• Marine environmental quality and transboundary fisheries.
• Strategic manipulation of internationally tradable and bankable pollution permits.
• Trash exporting versus domestic recycling of trash.
• Energy transition, carbon taxes, and border carbon tax adjustments.
• Smart energy systems and distributed energy resource management.

Submission timetable:
Submissions will be processed as soon as they are received. The final deadline is June 30, 2021. Papers that still require major revision after the second round will not be accepted for the special issue and will be treated as submissions to a regular issue. We encourage early submissions.  The accepted papers will appear online in advance of the production of the full special issue.
