This research develops SDGs 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land). A new recycling process of the common plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) could help with the urgent problem of ever-increasing amounts of plastic waste in our oceans and the environment.

This research supports SDGs 2 (zero hunger), 15 (life on land) and 17 (partnerships for the goals). Ecological intensification aims to use ecosystem services (e.g. pollination and pest management) to sustain agricultural production while minimising environmental impact. Kleijn et al. discuss the benefits of ecological intensification and ways that scientists can better communicate these to farmers.

In support of global conservation targets SDG 14 (life below water) and SDG15 (life on land), the Aichi Targets of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity have provided a set of clear conservation targets. The authors argue that scenarios and models are not currently being used to their full potential.

Forests are essential to the SDGs and can further multiple SDGs simultaneously. This paper contributes to goal 15 by discussing the importance of integrated, innovative and inclusive governance systems to ensure that efforts to advance the SDGs can better benefit from, and provide support for, forests.

To advance SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production), 7 (clean energy) and 15 (life on land), this article specifically focuses on co-production and optimization of food and energy systems within the constraints of ecological sustainability. Specifically, it highlights how the role of nature and ecosystem services could be incorporated in engineering design.

This article provides an opportunity to reflect on whether natural resource use, as viewed through the Food-Energy-Water (FEW) Nexus lens, provides a useful basis for guiding integrated environmental management. Addressing and contributing to SDG 15 (life on land), SDG 14 (life below water) and SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production).

This article explores the conflicts between SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) and SDG 15 (life on land). This piece argues that many decision makers have deep mis-conceptions surrounding the benefits of roads and provides a range of tactics to conservation scientists who oppose a particular roading project.

This research contributes to SDGs 15 (life on land), 7 (affordable and clean energy), 6 (clean water and sanitation) and 12 (responsible consumption and production). The study specifically maps and quantifies nitrogen nutrient flows in a local food-energy-water system and indicates how such modeling could inform decision-making for sustainable management of nutrients.

Picture showing different livelihoods in the wetland studied
Ensuring conservation, restoration and sustainable use of wetlands is a target under goal 15 (life on land). This paper studies the major ecological states and identifies the main ecosystem services (ESs), along with local people's perceptions of wetland management in the Ethiopian wetlands.
