Cancers in the Urban Environment, Second Edition, 2021, Pages 22-23

This book chapter advances SDG 3 by explaining how advances in technology and research methodology now permit us to assign more certainty to the magnitude of genetic susceptibility.
Elsevier,

Sustainable Water Engineering, 2020, Pages 99-120

This book chapter advances SDG 3 by explaining how water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) essentially address healthy living through intelligent management of human behaviour and the production of wastes so that the environment and ecosystems are not negatively impated. This chapter describes WASH in low resource countries and the role of the engineer in enabling the approach.
Elsevier,

Child and Adolescent Online Risk Exposure, 2021, Pages 233-254

This chapter addresses SDG 10 and SDG 3 through an examination the critical dimensions of cyberbullying in relation to hate speech and online harassment, connecting it with racial and ethnic discrimination.

D. Sugawara, Chapter 10 - Lessons from the 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami: implications for Paleotsunami research, Editor(s): Tsunemasa Shiki, Yoshinobu Tsuji, Teiji Yamazaki, Futoshi Nanayama, Tsunamiites (Second Edition), Elsevier, 2021, Pages 155-181, ISBN 9780128239391,

In response to the extensive loss of life and property caused by the Tohoku-oki tsunami, as well as the fact that geological precursor evidence has not been effectively used in disaster management programs, the importance of tsunami deposit research has gained significant attention with the expectation that it will provide reliable information on the recurrence interval and size of devastating tsunamis. This book chapter advances SDGs 11 and 15.
Elsevier,

Oliver et al., Practice improvement through a sex and gender high-value healthcare model, In: Jenkins et al, How Sex and Gender Impact Clinical Practice, Academic Press, 2021, Pages 309-323.

This book chapter advances SDGs 3 and 5 by explaining that there is evidence that healthcare cost distress affects women disproportionately, and that one way clinicians can help combat the epidemic of financial toxicity is through the practice of high-value care, an approach that aims to improve patient health and well-being by reducing the costs of care and/or by improving patient outcomes.
Elsevier,

Particulates Matter, 2021, Pages 77-91

This book chapter advances SDGs 3, 13, and 15 by explaining how particulate matter in our atmosphere can have a range of negative effects on the body when inhaled, emphasising the need to assess and improve air quality.
Elsevier,

Jenkins et Al. Application of sex and gender health: A practical framework. In: Jenkins et al, How Sex and Gender Impact Clinical Practice, Academic Press, 2021, Pages 3-8.

This book chapter advances SDGs 3 and 5 by explaining that the use of a sex- and gender-based framework in the clinical practice of medicine will improve the care of both women and men, and likely have a positive impact on health outcomes.
Elsevier,

Heavy Metals in the Environment, 2021, Pages 165-178

This chapter advances SDG 6 by explaining the use of cluster analysis, multivariate statistical methods, principal component analysis, and factor analysis for the interpretation and analysis of difficult water quality data
Elsevier,

Global Groundwater, 2021, Pages 145-162

This chapter advances SDG 6, 12, and 13 by explaining the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and GRACE Follow On (GRACE-FO) missions that have greatly benefitted the modeling and monitoring of groundwater storage changes and drought at the global scale. In this chapter, we first review environmental controls on the temporal variability of groundwater using in situ data. We then describe an approach that infuses GRACE and GRACE-FO observations into a land surface model for assessing groundwater storage changes and drought globally.
Elsevier,

Global Groundwater, 2021, Pages 347-357

This chapter advances SDG 6, 12, and 13 by examining the emergence of water sustainability aspects in recent virtual water trade (VWT) literature, highlights the recent advances and remaining issues in evaluating the water sustainability of agriculture globally, and makes recommendations for future scientific research and societal change: consider groundwater both at the local scale and at the global scale; improve our understanding of groundwater storage and dynamics with new models and data; and raise the profile of groundwater sustainability in governance frameworks to eventually end environmental damages of groundwater exploitation.
