Sustainable wood-based design solutions necessarily presuppose economically, socially, and environmentally reliable sources of wood use for any future designs. However, increasingly unsustainable effects from climate extremity are now prompting the search for alternative forms of use that avoid or forestall those effects.
The Zambezi Riparian Region (ZRR) is a lifeline and home to ∼40 million people who depend heavily on the river basin for their livelihood.
This article supports SDGs 9, 11 and 13 by employing an Urban-Water-Energy (UWE)-Nexus approach to understand water and energy demand and their interactions in both space and time for Rhode Island and quantifies the extent and exposure of the Urban Heat Island effects among its towns and urban populations using high-resolution details.
Local actions have been considered as an important path for effective climate actions, but the extent to which community-level plastic waste elimination actions can be effective in coastal regions are unclear. This article leverage a nation-wide case study in Australia to show that community-level plastic pollution reduction actions can result in large benefits, regardless whether the plastic pollution was originated from the community or not.

The paper studied the evaluation index system of urban garden afforestation, ecological environment benefit and urban garden afforestation, furthering SDG 11, 5 and 9.
The paper supports SDG3, 11 and 15 by discussing the air pollution and the study will assist urban planners, policymakers, and health sectors.
This Series paper supports SDG 3 and 11 by presenting 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.
This Series paper supports SDG 3 and 11 by identifying 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.
This Series paper supports SDG 3 and 11 by assessing policy frameworks for city planning for 25 cities across 19 countries to identify whether these policies support the creation of healthy and sustainable cities.
This Series paper supports SDG 3 and 11 by calculating spatial indicators of urban design and transport features that support health and sustainability for 25 diverse cities in 19 countries.
