This journal article addresses goals 7, 12, 13 and 15 by discussing how the rising demand for renewable resources has increased silage maize production which has adverse environmental effects and therefore limits the advantages of renewable biomass.
Insect populations are declining even in protected areas, but the underlying causes are unclear.This journal article addresses goals 15 and 13 by exploring whether the factors driving the loss of insect diversity include invasive and/or introduced insects transmitting pathogens to less-resistant native species.

Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, Volume 38, June 2019, Pages 22-30

This journal article addresses goals 15 and 3 by exploring the proposal to set aside half of Earth's land as an interconnected global conservation reserve.
This articles addresses goals 3, 11, and 13 by reviewing key assessments from the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C and examines the implications for the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR).

Ocean & Coastal Management, Volume 171, 1 April 2019, Pages 28-36,

This article contributes to SDG 13 (climate action) and SDG 14 (life below water), highlighting the importance of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) as effective instruments to conserve biodiversity and its resources.
Contributing to SDG 13 (climate action), this rigorous study shows that renewable electricity systems could work equally well in both historical and future climates, despite changing weather patterns.

Joule, Volume 3, Issue 1, 16 January 2019, Pages 81-100

To achieve goals 7 and 13, we need more renewable energy, and yet the intermittency of renewable sources like wind or solar power means there is a pressing need to develop effective energy storage systems. This Joule study analyses the application-specific lifetime cost for a range of different electricity storage technologies. The analysis strongly suggests that specialized technologies are unlikely to compete with lithium ion battery storage for nearly all applications.
To advance goal 12 and 13, this report provides guidance on the “ambition loop” — a positive feedback loop in which bold Government policies and private sector leadership reinforce each other, and together, take climate action to the next level.
While most businesses understand and recognize their responsibility for the health and safety of their employees, few have connected the dots between their business actions and health outcomes in the market place, in society more generally and in the supply chain. This report outlines concrete actions for companies to embed health and empowerment in their policies, systems, and operations, advancing SDGs 3, 8 and 13.

Futures, Volume 105, January 2019, Pages 155-165.

Relating to SDGs 3 (Good Health and Well-being) and 13 (Climate Action), this Elsevier Atlas Award winning article explores the need for de-growth in developed nations as part of a global effort to tackle climate change and the structural sources of potential short-term wellbeing losses from a sociological perspective.
