Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss


Trevor M. Letcher, 1 - Global warming—a complex situation, Editor(s): Trevor M. Letcher, Climate Change (Third Edition), Elsevier, 2021, Pages 3-17

This book chapter advances SDGs 13 and 15 by examining how pollution and greenhouse gases contribute to global warming, as well as addressing the social and ethical impacts of climate change.

Chris D. Jones, Chapter 4 - Numerical modeling of the global climate and carbon cycle system, Editor(s): Trevor M. Letcher, Climate Change (Third Edition), Elsevier, 2021, Pages 67-91

This chapter advances SDGs 13 and 15 by applying numerical modeling techniques to better understand the global climate and utilize observations to identify impacts of climate change on Earth.
This book chapter advances SDGs 13, 12 and 15 by discussing climate change and its causes and effects on water resources and implications for adaptation.

Introduction to Forestry and Natural Resources, Second Edition, 2022.

This preface advances SDG 15 by providing an overview of the breadth and depth of this second edition, and the key insights it contains.
This book chapter advances SDG 15 by demonstrating the concept of designing mixed species native plantings (a type of semi-natural habitat) based on plant-insect interactions to increase abundance and diversity of non-bee and bee crop pollinators in an intensively managed agricultural landscape.
This book chapter advances SDGs 13, 14 and 15 by exploring “passive” mangrove restoration strategies as a preferred restoration in order to provide better opportunities for blue carbon abatement and increase resilience of coasts to rising sea levels and biodiversity loss.
This book chapter advances SDGs 3, 13, and 15 by explaining how particulate matter in our atmosphere can have a range of negative effects on the body when inhaled, emphasising the need to assess and improve air quality.

D. Sugawara, Chapter 10 - Lessons from the 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami: implications for Paleotsunami research, Editor(s): Tsunemasa Shiki, Yoshinobu Tsuji, Teiji Yamazaki, Futoshi Nanayama, Tsunamiites (Second Edition), Elsevier, 2021, Pages 155-181, ISBN 9780128239391,

In response to the extensive loss of life and property caused by the Tohoku-oki tsunami, as well as the fact that geological precursor evidence has not been effectively used in disaster management programs, the importance of tsunami deposit research has gained significant attention with the expectation that it will provide reliable information on the recurrence interval and size of devastating tsunamis. This book chapter advances SDGs 11 and 15.

Choy Yee Keong, Chapter 2 - The United Nations' journey to global environmental sustainability since Stockholm: An assessment, Editor(s): Choy Yee Keong, Global Environmental Sustainability, Elsevier, 2021, Pages 7-61

This book chapter advances SDGs 13, 15, and 17 by providing perspective on what's been done so far to address environmental sustainability globally and how the goals have developed as a response to climate change.
This book chapter addresses goals 12, 14 and 15 by discussing the debate surrounding the role of biodegradable plastics in solving plastic solid waste accumulation and assisting the transition toward a circular economy, in turn encouraging more sustainable communities and responsible consumption.
