SCOPE

As interest and discussion grow around the potential of Nature-based Solutions for Climate and Water, PLOS Climate and PLOS Water are calling for submissions for a new Collection to build the evidence and critical perspectives needed to support, enhance and challenge decision-making.

We welcome submissions of research (including theoretical, observational, computational, qualitative, mixed-methods and participatory research) addressing all aspects of the development, implementation and assessment of nature-based solutions for climate change and managing and protecting our planet’s freshwater resources, including but not limited to ecological, biophysical, technological, economic, sociological, political and ethical dimensions. We especially encourage submissions of studies involving inter-/trans-disciplinary approaches and those which share perspectives from underrepresented global regions and communities.

RESEARCH TOPICS
As interest in nature-based solutions grows, it’s vital to cultivate interdisciplinary and social science analyses of how, why and with what consequences for social and environmental justice these interventions are being designed and implemented

JOURNAL INFORMATION

PLOS Climate will rapidly disseminate rigorous research, with a commitment to open research principles that empower academic researchers, policy-makers, governments, international organizations and industry to understand dynamic, changing climates and take positive, evidence-based action in the face of climate change. We will catalyze practical solutions and amplify perspectives from under-represented voices and regions about issues across the breadth of climate research.

Email questions to climate@plos.org

PLOS Water connects researchers across the hydrology, water resources, and water, sanitation and hygiene communities, amplifying a diverse set of voices to influence the global discourse around fresh water. Our journal drives Open Science water research forward to foster a deeper understanding of these interconnected issues, and to empower researchers, local and indigenous communities, water professionals, and organizations from across the globe to take positive, evidence-based action in order to address some of the most pressing issues our planet faces.
