Climate Risk Management

Climate Risk Management publishes original scientific contributions, state-of-the-art reviews and reports of practical experience on all aspects of the production and use of climate and climate-related information in decision and policy making from the near- to long-term.

Therefore, the scope of the journal covers:

  • Historical, current, and future climate conditions across multiple space and time scales;
  • Risk assessment and risk management approaches for climate-sensitive sectors such as agriculture, forestry and fire management, health, mining, natural resources management, water management, the built environment, and tourism; and
  • Analysis of relevant institutional developments and arrangements

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • The application of seasonal forecasting and regional climate change projections;
  • Capacity building;
  • Infrastructure design;
  • Management and systematic reduction of climate-induced hazards and disasters;
  • Protection of lives, livelihoods and property;
  • Mitigation of environmental damage;
  • Sustainable resource use and production;
  • Impacts, vulnerability and adaptation at individual, community and institutional levels;
  • Regulatory risks associated with climate change; and
  • Climate-sensitive interactions between economic, environmental and social systems

Research papers should consider the practical application of the thesis advanced through case studies, experiments, or systematic comparisons with existing approaches. Special issues devoted to topics of particular interest will be published on an occasional basis, and proposals for such issues are invited. Submission of multi- and interdisciplinary studies, particularly those involving economics and the social sciences, is encouraged.
