Water challenges of the 21st century

Deadline: 30 September 2017

I. Introduction

Water. One of the most important essentials for a living organism. Without it, life as we know it, would not exist. Its importance in the existence of humans, however, involves a significantly wider platform of roles. Water is not only a fundamental element of life, but the key component for a wide range of aspects of the economy including, for example, food and beverage production, almost all manufactory and industrial activities, energetics, and tourism. The Earth, however, has finite water resources; in a more and more globalised world with a steadily growing, significant population, increasing consumption, and major impacts on the physical environment, water safety is the definite challenge of the 21st century. This involves the accessibility of clean drinking water in all areas of the planet and the availability of sufficient resources for the economy whilst taking environmental issues into account. Recent physical anomalies caused by global climate changes may have effects on the water availability of certain areas of the planet which can result in precipitation extremism (too much or too small amount of water) and that, furthermore, can affect the agriculture and a chain of other segments of economy. The list of water related challenges, therefore, are a constant increase that have to be addressed and it is more important than ever before.

Geographical Locality Studies (GLS) is the official journal of Frugeo Geography Research Initiative registered in the United Kingdom as print serial (ISSN 2052-0018) and online (ISSN 2053-3667) materials. GLS is a co-operative British-Hungarian scientific journal that sets its specialist area in locality, sustainability and environmental topics. It is (at the moment) issued and published annually, and each number is planned and developed by a specially selected, international editorial board that consists of expert researchers, lecturers and peer-reviewers.

The journal covers the following keywords: locality, sustainability, environmental/global issues, recycling, up-cycling, and reuse.

GLS aims to erect a bridge between academic research and general educational knowledge development; that is why its target audience involves a wide range of students from secondary to doctoral schools, young researchers and anybody from any background who wants to know more about locality and sustainability-related environmental and geographical topics.

Supporting this aim, Frugeo GRI invites ambitious researchers to join the success of our projects and be an original and significant contribution to the human knowledge of Earth Sciences (geography and geology) and also Environmental Sciences. We provide publication possibilities to academics who have already earned a PhD degree; and we would like to highlight the importance of education and give the chance and opportunity to PhD Students, and also MSc/BSc Students, to help them gain recognition, points and credits, and assist in their scientific life getting an easier start on the sometimes difficult path of publishing and academic writing.

We provide opportunity for publications to researchers. A published work in one of our upcoming issues has to be of a high standard, must be well-researched, well-illustrated and well-written in an engaging style. It must be topical and must contribute to the development of any scientific disciplines in relation to geography. Original research results as well as summary papers are both accepted. It also has to be educative and build a good balance between academic and public understanding.

Our journal covers many different types of—mainly geographical—subjects; therefore, we encourage and approach anyone who acts on the fields of Earth or Environmental Sciences, too. For the upcoming titles and publishing possibilities, please keep an eye on our regularly updated websites ( and or contact us (

The various articles that we expect from our multidisciplinary participants may cover many different scientific (and non-scientific) subjects, fields and areas, e.g. biology, architecture, manufactory, arts, mathematics, catering, fair trade, tourism, etc.; so we would like to encourage any subject and we really do mean any – as long as it interlinks with the keywords in a geographic sense.
