Greenhouse Effect

The greenhouse effect, a natural process where certain gases in Earth's atmosphere trap heat from the sun, underpins several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It directly relates to SDG 13 (Climate Action) as human activities, particularly the burning of fossil fuels, have increased greenhouse gas concentrations, intensifying the greenhouse effect and leading to global warming. It also impacts SDG 15 (Life on Land) and SDG 14 (Life Below Water) as the resulting climate changes alter habitats and threaten biodiversity. Additionally, it influences SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) and SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), with changes in climate affecting crop yields and water availability. Lastly, by promoting a transition to low-carbon and renewable energy sources to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the greenhouse effect is closely linked to SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy).

The research seeks to estimate biogas production potential from livestock and slaughterhouse wastes in Ghana, in order to promote biogas technology as a possible alternative in the search for sustainable energy management methods and in support of the SDG goals.
This articles supports SDGs 13, 11 and 2 by discussing the need for feasibility studies to be completed to determine their effect on net greenhouse gas emissions before using novel energy crops to produce bioenergy.
This study, which supports SDG's 13 and 15 looks at how important drivers like water level and bioturbation affect soil characteristics in the development of novel ecosystems aiming to improve the functioning of degraded landscapes.
Private and public sector organisations are increasingly required to report on their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The UK approach has a bearing on SDG 13.

Irrigation management may influence soil greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Solid-set sprinkler irrigation systems allow to modify the irrigation time and frequency. The objective of this study was to quantify the effect of two irrigation times (daytime, D; nighttime, N)and two irrigation frequencies (low, L; high, H)on soil carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O)emissions in a solid-set sprinkler-irrigated maize (Zea mays L.)field located in NE Spain during 2015 and 2016 growing seasons and the fallow period between growing seasons.

This paper describes the methodology and data used to determine greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions attributable to ten cities or city-regions: Los Angeles County, Denver City and County, Greater Toronto, New York City, Greater London, Geneva Canton, Greater Prague, Barcelona, Cape Town and Bangkok. Equations for determining emissions are developed for contributions from: electricity; heating and industrial fuels; ground transportation fuels; air and marine fuels; industrial processes; and waste.
