Resilient Decision-making for a Riskier World

Drought in Nicaragua.

Last Updated: 11 May 2017

This special collection applies risk and decision analysis to address complex challenges across food, energy, environment, and water systems. The contributions will 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 special collection seeks contributions from a wide range of scholars and practitioners from various disciplines (including but not limited to conservation science, ecology, mathematics, soil science, agronomy, economics, decision science, hydrology, geography, and political science), on a variety of applications (including but not limited to urban flood management, food security, ecosystem services, water security, climate change, deforestation, and biodiversity) and in multiple locations. The complex causes and consequences of these risks at critical system boundaries calls for approaches that transcend narrow disciplines. The special collection welcomes framing contributions, methodological innovations, and empirical applications in the context of risks in food, energy, environment, and water.
