Some of the greatest challenges for today's architecture are multifunctionality, energy saving and sustainability — problems that insects have partially solved during their evolution. From biomimetics in architecture design and materials, to decomposition of waste management and intelligent algorithms to reduce congestion, insects are an unlimited source of inspiration for innovations to advance SDGs 11 and 12.
This journal article advances SDG 6 and 11 by studying a high level approach to analyse the current and projected water demand and supply of 12 megacities. The current water demand of these cities outstrips the supply by 5.27 billion m3 yr−1, with this expected to grow considerably by 2035. As such, comprehensive and urgent action is needed on water loss reduction and overall demand management, as well as formal infrastructure expansion.
This paper discusses the challenges in safely re-opening indoor sport centres and the measures already suggested by others to partly tackle these challenges. It also elaborates three potential additional measures and based on these additional measures, it suggests the concept of a certificate of equivalence that could allow indoor sports centers with such a certificate to re-open safely and more rapidly. It also attempts to stimulate increased preparedness of indoor sports centers that should allow them to remain open safely during potential next waves of SARS-CoV-2 as well as future pandemics. This contributes to SDGs 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 16.
This chapter advances SDG 6 and 11 by exploring the technological landscape of water purification in India, focusing on strategies for treatment of wastewater as a potential water source.
This chapter advances SDG 6 and 11 by reporting on the various laws and policy governing water supply in South Africa as well as the current state of water and wastewater infrastructure in South Africa.
