This chapter contributes to SDG 6 by providing up-to-date information on nanomaterial potential application in water remediation.
The United Nations General Assembly decided that International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples would be observed every year on 9th August. On this day, people from around the world are encouraged to help spread the UN’s message on the protection and promotion of the rights of indigenous peoples. Elsevier is pleased to share this special collection of freely available articles to help spread awareness about this important topic. Please feel free to download and share these papers.
This chapter contributes to SDG 6 by introducing the impact of COVID-19 on water and sanitation, explaining Sustainable Development Goal-6 (clean water and sanitation) in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, and highlighting lessons learned regarding the water and COVID-19.
This Article supports SDGs 3 and 6, focusing on the effects of water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions on childhood diarrhoea in low and middle income countries. Their findings support the higher service levels called for under SDG 6.
This health policy supports SDGs 3 and 6, focusing on the neglected health issue of drowning. The paper discusses ways in which the issue can be framed to align with external priorities, particularly political contexts.
This chapter aligns with Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation and Goal 14: Life below water by aiming to critically review previous research on the presence of heavy metals, microplastics, and organic contaminants in urban waters and to synthesize the current knowledge of various urban water pollution sources.
This article supports SDG's 6, 11 and 15 through its discussion of the use of Phytoremediation as an economical and sustainable technology for environmental cleanup. Plant species known to utilize different phyto-mechanisms during phytoremediation of diverse pollutants are presented
