    For this Special Issue of Land, they invite authors to submit theoretical considerations and descriptions of practical case studies concerning ecosystem services (ES) and the biodiversity of peri-urban landscapes (PULs).

    Specifically, they welcome papers discussing the following topics:

    • Assessment and valuation methods of ES in PULs;
    • ES and biodiversity trade-offs in PULs;
    • Methods to delimitate ES benefitting and providing areas in the extend of PUL;

    Journal of Landscape Ecology is a fully reviewed scientific journal published by Czech National Chapter of the Association for Landscape Ecology (IALE-CZ) since 2008. Currently, three issues and more than 20 articles are published annually. The journal is available in print (ISSN 1803-2427) and online as open access (ISSN 1805-4196) published by De Gruyter Open (

    The Journal is indexed in SCOPUS (and many other databases) since 2013. The cite score is continuously increasing: 2021 – in the meantime 2.0; 2020 – 1.3; 2019 – 1.1; 2018 – 0.8; 2017 – 0.6 as well as SJR.

    The Journal supports integration of knowledge from geo-, bio- and socio-sciences at the ecosystem and landscape level. Great emphasis is given to relationships between nature and culture including knowledge of ancient landscapes. The Journal publishes papers on spatial and temporal heterogeneity especially in the context of climate change and its impacts on terrestrial environment across adequate scale hierarchy. Expertise from the spheres of land-use planning and design, habitat and landscape typology, ecosystem management, biodiversity protection and ecological restoration, and rules of ecological processes are promoted. The scope of the journal includes different landscapes and ecosystems of the world.

    Between 2019 and 2021, articles by authors from the following countries were published: Benin, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Estonia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Nigeria, Peru, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine, USA.

    The WSL Landscape Centre is proud to announce our next summer school on "Land-System Science for Analysing Dynamic Landscapes" that will take place from July 3 to 8, 2022, in Filzbach (Switzerland). The summer school is carried out in cooperation between the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL, the Free University of Amsterdam, Wageningen University, ETH Zurich, and the University of Bern. It particularly addresses young researchers and PhD students who work in the interdisciplinary field of landscape research.

    Please find all information on the WSL website.

    Registration is open until January 31, 2022 with a motivation letter of 5000 characters and a 1-page short CV.

    Special Issue of Climate (ISSN 2225-1154).

    Rapid urbanization is one of the most relevant but also threatening trends for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. One prominent aim, SDG 13 Climate Action, is directly related to sustainable urban development. Increases in impervious areas from soil sealing and land consumption by unplanned or informal urban development is weakening the resilience and adaptive capacities not only of the urban systems, but of their environments on which they pose huge pressures in terms of pollution, local climate changes and biodiversity losses. One of the key requirements for sustainable urban systems is therefore to include Climate Action in policies and planning for livelihood and human well-being.

    Vice versa, urban areas are suffering particularly from climate change impacts, considering, for instance, urban heat effects in hot summers, increasing flood risks or long smog periods. Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11) are expected to contribute largely to a bundle of UN SDGs, such as SDG 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing), SDG 6 (Clean water and sanitation), and SDG 15 (Life on Land). The achievement of many of them can be endangered through adverse climate change impacts which provoke water scarcity, critical situations related to portable water, sewage disposal and problems related to waterborne diseases. Additionally, climate change-driven migration can contribute to informal settlements at urban fringes that put undue pressure on relevant services such as the circulation of cool air, water percolation and flood mitigation.

    We are pleased to invite scientists working at the nexus of climate change–urban development–sustainability to this Special Issue which intends to present case studies in different global regions about the interactions of climate change and the achievement of the UN SDGs, particularly in fast growing metropolitan areas, but also with regard to future risks for urban development. This Special Issue also intends to showcase how smart urban planning, improved information and communication policies and governance mixes can help us to mitigate and overcome the negative back-coupling effects of climate change for sustainable urban development.

    In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome, but also perspective and discussion papers. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

    • Climate change impacts on urban sustainable development goals;
    • Climate change risks, threats and chances for sustainable urban development;
    • Climate change and rural–urban migration patterns;
    • Climate trends and urban green, blue and grey infrastructure;
    • Nature-based solutions for coping with climate change in urban contexts;
    • Participatory urban planning instruments to respond to climate change;
    • Sustainable urban governance under future climate conditions;
    • Urban planning and development of resilient cities;
    • Urban dwellers viewpoints on climate change—vulnerable groups.
