We are currently inviting researchers to contribute to the Topical Collection titled ” Agroecology, Renewable Energy and Biodiversity Conservation: Promoting Resilient Food Systems amidst Climate Change “.

The proposed Topical Collection aims to assess the critical intersection of Agroecology, Renewable Energy, and Biodiversity Conservation as pivotal strategies for fostering resilient food systems in the face of rapidly changing climatic conditions. This collection of articles seeks to explore innovative approaches, sustainable practices, and technological advancements that enhance agricultural sustainability, preserve biodiversity, and mitigate the impacts of climate change on food production.

In this Topical Collection, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:

  1. Renewable energy, clean technology, and food security
  2. Renewable, Clean technology and agribusiness
  3. Green economy, environmental sustainability, and food security.
  4. Clean technology, carbon neutrality and sustainable development
