Research and commentary on artificial intelligence, contributing to goal 9 on industry, innovation and infrastructure, with particular focus on the technology-related targets.
Agricultural wastes are readily available in farming communities and can be utilised for off-grid electrification as an alternative to diesel generators.
Electricity systems based on renewables have an increasing demand for flexibility.
Economic development projects are increasingly applying the mitigation hierarchy to achieve No Net Loss, or even a Net Gain, of biodiversity.

Intelligent Data Mining and Fusion Systems in Agriculture, 2020, Pages 1-15

This book presents methods of computational intelligence and data fusion that have applications in agriculture for the non-destructive testing of agricultural products and crop condition monitoring. This chapters address SDGs 2 and 9 by presenting methods related to the combination of sensors with Artificial Intelligence architectures in Precision Agriculture.
Focussing on SDGs 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) and 11 (sustainable cities and communities), BEYOND 2020 endeavours to link the built environment sector to the SDGs.
Waste multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs), containing BaTiO 3 , Ag, Pd, Ni and Sn etc., are valuable secondary resource.

International Built Environment Week (IBEW), to be held from 3 to 6 September 2019, is the most comprehensive event in Asia Pacific on the built environment.

The Africa Regional Data Cube (ARDC), based on the Open Data Cube infrastructure, is a technological innovation that layers 17 years of satellite imagery and Earth observation data for five African countries. This report identifies the key enabling environment, data management and sharing factors that affect the operationalization of the ARDC and makes recommendations to inform the scale-up of the technology, furthering SDGs 9 and 17.
The number of countries with a national development plan has more than doubled, from about 62 in 2006 to 134 in 2018.
