Publish your research in Energy, Sustainability & Development Economics with Elsevier

According to the UN Sustainable Development Knowledge Platform,  "sustainable development has been the overarching goal of the  international community since the UN Conference on Environment and  Development (UNCED) in 1992... Despite the efforts of many governments  around the world to implement such strategies as well as international  cooperation to support national governments, there are continuing  concerns over global economic and environmental developments in many  countries. These have been intensified by recent prolonged global  energy, food and financial crises, and underscored by continued warnings  from global scientists that society is transgressing a number of  planetary boundaries or ecological limits."

In Elsevier, we want  to showcase the research done in this important field of investigation  and bring to readers and researchers the best available articles on our  Elsevier journals focusing on energy, sustainability and development  economics.
