Earth's Future Journal Special Issue: Resilient Decision-Making for a Riskier World

Members of the FE2W Network have edited and contributed to a special collection of the journal Earth’s Future. This special collection applies risk and decision analysis to address complex challenges across food, energy, environment, and water systems. The contributions not only highlight methodological innovations, but also provide a series of applications at locations across the world to show how risk-based decision making can be implemented, even with limited resources, and what difference it can make in terms of outcomes.

The open-access articles in the special collection can be viewed and downloaded free of charge from the Earth’s Future website.

A transdisciplinary, open-access science journal, Earth’s Future examines the state of the planet and its inhabitants, sustainable and resilient societies, and the predictions of our common future. The journal assesses the challenges and opportunities of an era where humans dominate Earth’s environment, resources and ecosystems. It publishes peer-reviewed articles, reviews and (short and long-form) commentaries in areas that include water, air, food, energy, hazards, climate and weather, ecosystems, human well-being and demographics, among others. Contributions focus on Earth as an interconnected, evolving system to inform researchers, policy makers and the public on the science of the Anthropocene. Earth’s Future is published by the American Geophysical Union and has an impact factor of 4.59 (2018).
