World Water Day is an annual United Nations Observance focusing on the importance of freshwater and raising awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water.To raise awareness of the value of water, Elsevier presents a curated list of free access journal articles and book chapters. At Elsevier, we are advancing #SDG6 research and ensuring that #Everydrop counts.
The imperative to mainstream biodiversity conservation into economic decision making at all levels and in all sectors of society is undeniable, particularly now that the connections between nature and human wellbeing are becoming more obvious.
In The World We Want we explore key themes related to the SDGs: leadership, innovation and youth. Dr. Márcia Balisciano, Global Head of Corporate Responsibility, interviews influencers and thought leaders across disciplines on how we can build back better to achieve the global goals.
Rewilding can be defined as restoration to promote self-regulating complex ecosystems through restoring non-human ecological factors and processes while reducing human control and pressures. Key reasons for a focus on rewilding are its reliance on mechanisms of long-term effectiveness, high upscaling potential, and enhancement of resilience.
Caring for lands and waters must become the new bottom line not only for communities and countries but also for businesses and corporations. Investing in the protection and restoration of nature and in equitable outcomes is the most important thing we can do to secure our future. The ten paths outlined here will help us to become responsible and loving caretakers of Earth and each other.
