Tropical insects are astonishingly diverse and abundant yet receive only marginal scientific attention.
Insects are indispensable actors within global agri-food systems and ensure the delivery of myriad ecosystem services.
Insects have a significant role towards achieving sustainable development, but the decline of insect knowledge outreach efforts is dampening their impact.
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 Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is the guiding policy for agriculture and the largest single budget item in the European Union (EU).
Non-ribosomal peptides (NRPs) and polyketides (PKs) are among the most profuse families of secondary metabolites (SM) produced by bacteria.

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.
Dr. Dr. Dênis Pires de Lima, 2017 first prize winner of the Elsevier Foundation-ISC3 Green & Sustainable Chemistry Challenge
In 2017, Dr. Dênis Pires de Lima from the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, was awarded the first prize of € 50,000 for his project “From Cashews to castor oil, combating mosquito-borne diseases.” Contributing to SDGs 3 and 15, Dr. Pires de Lima and his team’s project promoted the use of natural waste from locally sourced cashew nuts and castor oil, to produce environmentally friendly insecticides against mosquitoes carrying Zika and Dengue fever — a sustainable alternative to conventional, substantially toxic insecticides. Three years later, we interviewed Dr. about his experience as a winner of the Green Sustainable Chemistry Challenge, as well as the upcoming steps for his winning project.
