Sustainable Development Strategies, Engineering, Culture and Economics, 2021, Pages 1-25

This book chapter advances SDG 11 and 13 by introducing the concepts of sustainable development. The definitions as evolved over time have been briefly discussed. The evolution of the sustainable development concepts coupled with the underling theorems, philosophy, ethics, and social responsibility has also been described. The dimensions of sustainable development along with the recent trends have also been discussed.

Global climate change and land degradation are two grand changes facing humanity. In this perspective, we examine how degraded and abandoned farmland can be harnessed to fight climate change.

The SDG Impact of COVID-19 podcast series gathers expert opinion exploring the impact of COVID-19 on the Sustainable Development Goals. In this segment, we get the view of Joan Walley, Chair of the Aldersgate Group and former Labour MP.

Biogeochemistry (Fourth Edition), Academic Press, 2020, Pages 453-481, 9780128146088

Life is composed primarily of carbon, so estimates of the global production and destruction of organic carbon give us an overall index of the health of the biosphere. This book chapter advances SDGs 11 and 13.

William D. Fletcher, Craig B. Smith, Chapter 9 - What would it take to reach net zero?, Reaching Net Zero, Elsevier, 2020, Pages 107-122

This chapter addresses SDGs 13, 15, and 12 by examining scenarios for reaching net zero production and consumption, but also the challenges in implementation.

Reaching Net Zero, What It Takes to Solve the Global Climate Crisis, 2020, Pages 107-122

This book chapter advances SDG 11, 13, 17 by describing the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other reports on the need to limit global temperature increase to 2.0°C and preferably 1.5°C. The chapter outlines possible scenarios and introduces the concept of “net zero” by 2050, the essential elimination of greenhouse gas emissions. The chapter also discusses why this deadline is not achievable and presents a more likely scenario.
