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

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.
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 Dr Sam Scheiner, Editor-in-Chief of the Encyclopedia of Biodiversity.

This article addresses goals 16, 12, and 15 by discussing the Initiative for the Integration of the Regional Infrastructure of South America, or IIRSA, and presenting results of a projection analysis showing that IIRSA could push the Amazonian forest past a “tipping point,” degrading biodiversity, reducing carbon storage, and harming continental agriculture.
This article addresses goals 13, 14, and 15 by discussing the common methods of evaluating the management of biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services in natural environments.

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.

Directly contributing to SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 15 (life on land), this research identifies microplastic's multiple negative impacts on terrestrial ecosystem services.
This article explores a previously overlooked form of microplastic pollution. Directly relevant to SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production), SDG 15 (life on land) and SDG 14 (life below water), this research investigates the interactions between tire derived microplastics and organic matter within the environment.
