Integrated Disaster Risk Research of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau under Climate Change

期刊:International Journal of Disaster Risk Science

客座编辑: Prof. Peijun Shi, Prof. Peng Cui, Prof. Tao Ye


The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and its adjacent mountainous areas are featured with significant climate differences, diverse geomorphology, developed glaciers, and strong crustal uplift and river undercut. The complex natural environment has led to a variety of natural hazards and disasters, including earthquakes, rock/glacier fall, landslides, debris flows, flash floods, dust storms, and snowstorms. These hazards coexist, overlap, and interact, creating complex chains of disasters and cascading and compound events, and imposing great threat to local people and socioeconomic activities. Climate change featured with anthropogenic warming is altering the cycles of water, energy, and materials on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, leading to high potential risks in the future. It is of great significance to understand the interactions between different hazards, the formation of multi-hazards, disaster chains, and compound events, and their dynamics under climate change. We aim to call for efforts in understanding the mechanisms of triggering, cascading, and compound events, developing integrated assessment models for socioecological systems in this region, and projecting future climate change challenges. Integrated risk governance approaches for sustainability addressing the above challenges are also welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Process-based modeling of disaster chains and compound events

  • Integrated risk assessment models for multi-hazards, disaster chains, and  compound events

  • Analysis of the dynamics of hazards and risks in response to climate change

  • Investigation of the complex regional and global impacts of hazards

  • Measures and effects of integrated risk governance

IPCC: dinosaur or dynamo for climate action?

期刊:Climate Action

客座编辑: Elin Lerum Boasson, Erlend Hermansen and Glen Peters


We seek contributions (original research, reviews, perspective articles and case studies) to a special collection that relate to the aims presented above, and for instance deal with the following questions: 

  • To what extent and how does the procedural set-up, design and execution of the IPCC process enable the IPCC to be relevant for climate action post-Paris?

  • How has the role of varying scientific disciplines within the IPCC changed over time, how has the IPCC in turn contributed to shape disciplinary practices, and how does this affect the ability of the IPCC to be relevant for climate action?  

  • How does IPCC knowledge inform and influence climate governance and climate action, at the international, regional, national and local level, and how has this changed over time? 

  • Which factors shape and determine whether and how IPCC reports and summary for policy makers are relevant for climate action? What is the relative importance of various scientific disciplines, member states, entrepreneurship, traditions, cultures and other factors, and how does the differing disciplines affect the impact of IPCC knowledge on climate action?  

  • Should and could the IPCC be reformed to become more relevant for climate action post-Paris? Can other science-policy procedures and boundary organizations be more conducive to facilitate climate action at this stage in climate transition processes?

Do not hesitate to contact the special issue editors if you consider submitting a contribution. 

Enhancing Sustainability in the Global South: Insights, Perspectives and Approaches

期刊:Discover Sustainability

客座编辑:Rudi Pretorius, Luis Velazquez, Golda A Edwin


In response to the need to provide a stronger voice for the South in the Northern dominated narrative on sustainable development, the Topical Collection “Enhancing sustainability in the Global South: Insights, perspectives and approaches” provides a platform to showcase and explore the role of the agency from the Global South in the development, adoption and implementation of sustainable development and specifically the sustainable development goals (SDGs) as a voluntary consensus framework for international development. To be truly effective, the problematic surrounding the environment and humankind in the 21st century and the role of the SDGs in this regard need to be reframed and redefined with cognizance of the context, priorities and real-world conditions as experienced and lived in the Global South. It stands to reason that the ideas and actors from the Global South have an important role to play in driving the transformative shifts required for the realization of the SDGs and doing so in a framework grounded in their knowledge and value systems, context and aspirations.

Recent Development and Applications of Sustainable Cooling and Cold Storage Technologies

期刊:Discover Energy

客座编辑: Yongliang Li, Wenji Song, Alessandro Romagnoli & Kai Wang


Cooling is the fastest-growing use of energy in buildings but is also one of the most critical blind spots in today’s energy debate. Rising demand for space cooling is putting enormous strain on electricity systems in many countries, as well as driving up emissions. The recent ‘Defining the Energy Conundrum of Cooling for All’ report found that globally the energy consumption from cooling (assuming current technology progress) will grow under the standard demand forecast to 9,500 TWh by 2050, which will then be greater than the energy consumption for heating. Similarly, the recent IEA technology report on ‘the Future of Cooling’ also concluded that ‘without action to address energy efficiency, energy demand for space cooling will be more than tripled by 2050 – consuming as much electricity as all of China and India generated today’. As a result, many countries have developed particular energy policies for decarbonising the cooling sector. For example, China has released the ‘Green and High-Efficiency Cooling Action Plan’ which has the force of law, setting forth targets for cooling-product energy efficiency improvement of 25-30% by 2030. The European Commission also launched its Heating and Cooling Strategy, identifying actions of ‘increasing the share of renewables’ and ‘reuse of energy waste from industry’ as two key areas for decarbonizing cooling to meet the EU’s climate goals by 2050.
