Climate vulnerability modelling of Welsh (UK) housing stock. Propensity for summertime overheating and moisture build up in a majority of Welsh housing. Cooling and ventilation strategies will be required to mitigate future discomfort, whilst ensuring occupant health and wellbeing.
Background: Epidemiological studies have reported the associations between nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and pediatric asthma incidence, but unable to ascertain indoor NO2 sources.
This chapter advances SDG goals 7, 9, and 11 by improving our ability to use smart grids to provide stable, demand- and market-responsive energy.
This webinar series is supported by Elsevier journals to help advance science & engineering for a sustainable future for human and ecological health through global interactions. The focus of each webinar will support at least one of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Illustrates the impact of the pandemic and resulting reduction in travel on food insecurity in Tajikistan.
A Series paper in the context of SDGs 11 and 12, analysing healthy city planning policy indicators for 25 cities across 19 countries, highlighting the need to strengthen policy frameworks for health-enhancing city planning, particularly in low-income and middle-income countries.
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.
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.
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.
This study found that increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events caused by human-induced climate change challenges progress on sustainable city development, but could also accelerate activities to enable cities to become more resilient.
