Under the  title "Climate Change and Health Hazards: responses to health hazards from a changing climate", the publication is expected to fill in a gap in respective of integrative publications on the links between climate change, health and health hazards, taking into account cross-cutting issues. 

The book "Climate Change and Health Hazards: addressing hazards to human and environmental health from a changing climate" will give a special emphasis to a state-of-the-art description of approaches, methods, initiatives, and projects from universities, health institutes, research  organizations and civil society across the world, regarding climate change and health. 

It will follow the success of the book "Climate Change and Health-Improving Resilience and Reducing Risks" published in 2016 which had over 50.000 downloads. 

The book will be published as part of the “Climate Change Management Series”  which, with 43 books published to date and with contributions from over 1.000 authors from 60 countries, is the world´s leading peer-reviewed book series on climate change.

3. Sustainability in a Circular Economy Context 

There are strong connections between a circular economy and the goal of pursuing sustainable development.  The thinking behind the circular economy, namely that natural resources may be used in the long-term, as opposed to simply being discarded, means that the rivarly between the pursuit of economic growth and sustainable development can be put aside. Both may go hand in hand. This is particularly important in less afluent countries, where environmental depletion means that natural resources are both scarce and costly. 

In order to support efforts to integrate the principles of a circular economy in the practice of sustainable development, the book   "Sustainability in a Circular Economy Context" is being prepared. 

This book is expected to fill in a gap in respective of integrative publications on the links between the circular economy and sustainable development, taking into account cross-cutting issues. It is produced by the European School of Sustainability Science and Research (ESSSR), through the European Alliance of Sustainability Research and the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP).

It will give a special emphasis to a state-of-the-art descriptions of approaches, methods, initiatives and projects from universities, companies, organizations and civil society across the world, regarding the circular economy as it relates to sustainable development. The book will be published as part of the “World Sustainability Series”  by Springer, one of the top 5 world scientific publishers in the World. The peer-reviewed nature of the series means that publications have been over the years officially accepted for tenure and promotion purposes. 

The book "Sustainability in a Circular Economy Context" will include examples of best practices via case studies, examples of projects, institutional policies, innovative methods and tools and research outputs highligting the interdependence between these two key topics. 

The editors are looking for an international balanced combination of theory and practice, with results from research, case studies and examples of best practice which may be replicable elsewhere. Expressions of interest for the submission of papers, consisting initially of a 200 words abstract - with all contact details of the authors - should be sent to the IUSDRP team at: iusdrp (@) ls.haw-hamburg.de.
