SUNRISE Environmental Risk Workshop, Roskilde 2015

Roskilde University in Denmark hosted the international workshop “Environmental Risk – Assessing and Managing Multiple Risks in a Changing World,” November 16-17, 2015, as part of its annual ‘SUNRISE’ series of conferences and workshops that feature groundbreaking science. The goal of this workshop was to develop a holistic perspective for assessing and managing risks from the multiple stressors and natural hazards that impact ecosystems and the humans who rely on them. Such a perspective is critical as—in a finite world with limited resources—it is paramount that major, multiple risks be appropriately addressed. All 3 articles from the workshop are available in this virtual issue.
