In order to reduce the losses to weather-related disasters and to achieve the sustainable development goals and broader human development objectives, social science researchers are more interested in studying the practical issues of climate change and meteorological disaster management (the urgency of technological innovation) from the economics and management science framework. The climate and meteorological data contains a wealth of applications and research value, and big data analysis provides a deep technical means for the above research.

The special collection seeks contributions from a wide range of scholars and practitioners from various disciplines including but not limited to decision science, economics, management science, operations research applied meteorology, and applied statistics), on a variety of applications. Methodological cross-innovation, empirical applications in the context of climate change economics, decision methods and techniques, meteorological disaster management and emergency management are particularly welcome.
