This Review supports SDGs 5 and 13, analysing the evidence on the effect of extreme weather events on gender based violence. Concluding that the increases in gender based violence during or after such events is linked to various factors, including economic instability, mental stress, and disrupted infrastructure.

The Paris Agreement goal of stabilizing temperature below 1.5C calls for a reduction of global energy consumption. Energy Efficiency policies are necessary but not sufficient to reduce energy consumption. Energy Conservation and Energy Sufficiency Policies complement Energy Efficiency policies, together they can reduce energy demand. The article presents some existing and new policies which address sufficiency. There is the need for coherent policy package with different types of policy instruments addressing efficiency and sufficiency.

The Lancet Global Health, Volume 10, June 2022

A Series paper in the context of SDGs 3 and 11 that aimed to identify the minimum thresholds for urban design and transport features associated with two physical activity criteria: at least 80% probability of engaging in any walking for transport and WHO's target of at least 15% relative reduction in insufficient physical activity through walking.

The Lancet Global Health, Volume 10, June 2022

A Series paper in the context of SDGs 3 and 11, offering an expanded framework of pathways through which city planning affects health, incorporating 11 integrated urban system policies and 11 integrated urban and transport interventions addressing current and emerging issues.

The Lancet Global Health, Volume 10, June 2022

An Article in support of SDGs 3 and 6, showing that achieving full coverage of basic water, sanitation, hygiene (WASH) and waste services in the least-developed countries' existing public health-care facilities will require substantial investment, with additional spending required in non-hospital facilities and in facilities in rural areas.

The Lancet Global Health, Volume 10, June 2022

A Series paper in the context of SDGs 11 and 12 that developed comparable open-source spatial indicators of urban design and transport features that support health and sustainability, for 25 diverse cities in 19 countries.
Elsevier, Environmental Innovation and Societal Transitions, Volume 43, June 2022
Historically STI policy is connected to national security and the military. Yet, contemporary innovation policy is rarely discussed in a security context. This perspective argues that new, transformation-oriented innovation policies should more explicitly consider (a) the side-effects of policies on global security and (b) how the global security context influences the achievement of transitions. This need is further extrapolated by the current period of rapid major shifts in the global security landscape.
Elsevier, Future Foods, Volume 5, June 2022
Meat induces large environmental impact while supplying important nutrients, and meat substitutes are increasingly adopted as direct replacers of meat products. This study assessed the environmental impact of a pork schnitzel and two soy-based schnitzels in terms of three different functional units to reflect the products’ functions as meal components and suppliers of high quality proteins. For a functional unit of 1 kg of product, the pork schnitzel induces the largest environmental impact for most environmental impact indicators.
