Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

This book chapter addresses goals 14, 13 and 6 by looking at climate change and the threats to deep sea benthic habitats.
This special issue explores the influence that insects and other invertebrates have on ecosystem services and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and makes a case for insect science to promote a sustainability science approach.

Insects support life on land (SDG 15) and below water (SDG 14) and help to provide clean water (SDG 6). While many studies have quantified the ecological services provided by insects in the temperate zones, we still lack consolidated information in the tropical realm where insects are the most diverse and abundant.
This book chapter addresses goals 14, 13 and 6 by looking at the ecology and species conservation of freshwater habitats.

This article addresses SDGs 6, 12 and 14 by providing an ambitious scientific road map to define a new water planetary boundary consisting of sub-boundaries that account for a variety of changes to the water cycle.
The need for improved and safely managed sanitation facilities is acute in dense informal settlements in rapidly urbanizing areas. One of the key factors influencing the cost-effectiveness and reliability of service provision in informal settlements is the ability to optimize waste collection from latrines with variable use patterns that are spatially dispersed within an informal settlement. This study investigates how latrine sensors could be used to estimate waste fill levels and improve servicing efficiency for forty latrines in Nairobi, Kenya, supporting SDGs 3, 6 and 9.
The abundance of residual colors in the effluents discharged from textiles, tanneries, dyeing, food processing and numerous other industries across the globe, currently poses a grave threat to global environmental sustainability. Polymer enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF) can be a cost effective and energy-efficient membrane separation process in the treatment of wastewater. This article supports SDGs 6, 12 and 14.
