In the last decade, the consumption trend of organic food has increased dramatically worldwide. Since only a few pesticides are authorized in organic crops, concentrations are expected to range at zero or ultra-trace levels, which this study explores.
This article supports SDGs 2, 12, and 13 by explaining how more diverse crop rotations yield benefits across all growing conditions and accelerate maize yield gains over time.
Virtual environments and serious games can convey environmental communication. Content and affordances may influence psychological distance and risk perception. Interactivity enhanced self-efficacy and in turn environmental outcomes. Psychological closeness enhanced risk perception and in turn environmental outcomes.
This article addresses goals 7, 9 and 13 by presenting a novel methodology to integrate both CO2 mitigation goals and the impacts of climate change into simulations of a power system expansion.
Remote Sensing helps fill data gaps and improve spatio-temporal transferability of projections, informing environmental interventions and policies towards achieving the SDGs.
Existing Earth Observation datasets can underpin spatial analyses of nature's contributions to SDGs.
Chioma Blaise Chikere, 2017 second prize winner of the Green Sustainable Chemistry Challenge
In 2017, Chioma Blaise Chikere was awarded the second prize of the Green and Sustainable Chemistry Challenge. Her project “Eco-restoration of crude oil-polluted land in Nigeria” demonstrated how organic nutrients such as garden fertilizers and animal excreta can be used to degrade hydrocarbons, cleaning up the soils heavily contaminated by decades of oil spills and advancing SDGs 6, 13 and 15. Three years later, we caught up with Dr. Chikere to learn about her research journey.

Cultured meat has emerged as a breakthrough technology for the global food industry, which was considered as a potential solution to mitigate serious environmental, sustainability, global public health, and animal welfare concerns in the near future. Contributing to SDGs 2, 12 and 13, this article examines the characteristics of cultured meat and summarises the current technological challenges and their possible solutions.

This article addresses goals 10, 11, and 13 by showing how to build resilience to the impacts of climate change in informal settlements, focusing on those located in cities in low- and middle-income countries and how these settlements concentrate at-risk populations.

Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia, Volume 46, Issue 4, July 2019, Pages 409-420.

This paper looks at a number of ways that veterinary anaesthetists can reduce their environmental impact, including by minimizing release of halogenated anaesthetics (which are potent greenhouse gases). This relates to SDGs 12 and 13.
