This paper offers a more rigorous concept of green growth in order that the conditions for its implementation may then be identified. Growth is understood here in its traditional economic sense: an increase in wealth measured in terms of production, income or living conditions. Growth is, a priori, neither “good” nor “bad”. To describe it, it is necessary to examine the mechanisms linking the factors of production, the return on these factors, and the wealth produced. Growth is termed “green” when it properly treats natural capital as an essential factor of production, alongside labor and physical capital.
This journal article addresses goals 7, 11, 12 and 15 by discussing how increased demand for biomass for bioenergy purposes may lead to a continued conversion of valuable habitats into productive lands and to intensification, which both have negative effects on biodiversity.
Research since 2000 has clearly shown the links between transport disadvantage, poverty, and economic and social exclusion. This paper reflects on the extent to which a social exclusion approach to research on transport disadvantage has been successful in opening up new avenues of research enquiry and/or identifying new theoretical perspectives and/or methodological approaches. It aligns with and shows the connections between SDGs 1, 10 and 11.

With the global urban population now exceeding 50 percent, the inhabitants of cities are recognized as a major driver of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This paper describes the methodology and data used to determine greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions attributable to ten cities or city-regions. Identifying cities with better per capita performance than others may help to guide climate change policies and contribute to SDG 13.3 to improve education, awareness and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation and adaption.
This paper reviews studies on the major ecosystem services provided by urban forests in China. Several critical issues could be identified from this review of the identification and assessment of ecosystem services generated by urban forests in China.
