Water Management in a Changing Climate

Call for Papers

You are invited to submit research articles, reviews, or comments for a special issue titled "Water Management in a Changing Climateā€¯ This issue will showcase state-of-the-art advancements on Persistent, emerging, and organic pollutants (PEOPs) especially within the climate change context. 

Persistent, emerging, and organic pollutants (PEOPs) pose ecological and health risks due to their persistent, toxic, carcinogenic, and/or bio-accumulative properties and associated long-term ecological and health risks. Many are not regulated or legislated, mainly due to the lack of in-depth knowledge about their fate, transport, impact, or corresponding lack of effective management and mitigation. These emerging pollutants are found in air, surface water, groundwater, ice caps, oceans, soils, and sediments, and there is increasing evidence of their toxicity at all trophic levels, highlighting an urgent need for effective management and mitigation approaches globally. The topic becomes ever challenging in the context of climate change and important for science and policy.

This special issue resulted from the LEADERS & PEOPLE 2020 Virtual Symposium on August 30-September 1; however, it is open to everyone.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. The manuscript must fully comply with the ESR submission guidelines and should be submitted via Editorial Manager.
