The researchers examined the use of footwear that incorporates force-sensing resistor sensors to classify lower limb disorders affecting the knee, hip, and ankle joints. The outcomes of the study reveal promising findings for future gait analysis and injury diagnosis, and the potential of force-sensing resistors (FSRs) and machine learning techniques for improving the assessment of lower limb injuries, and thereby furthering SDG3.
In this episode of the "World We Want" podcast, Márcia Balisciano interviews Filip Neele, Lead Scientist at TNO in Utrecht, the Netherlands. They discuss carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology as a “key” in energy transition and its role in supporting global sustainability.
The authors put forward a mathematical model for examining the impact of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services on reducing the transmission of waterborne diseases such as enteric diarrheal disease (EDD). It is found that wastewater and sewage treatment (WST) control has the most significant impact in terms of WASH interventions employed. The findings have could have very important public health potential and tie in strongly with the goals of SDG 6.
The authors assess the minimum level of sem-natural habitat that must be protected to preserve ecosystem services, including water quality. They show that services fail when habitat area falls below 20-25% per square kilometer.
Pakistan's water resources experiencing mounting pressure. UN SDG 6 provides a roadmap for achieving sustainable water management. Long-term planning and community engagement are key to success. Policy recommendations include efficient pricing and climate change integration.
The authors evaluate shifts in water reservoirs (i.e. atmospheric versus terrestrial and underground water storage). Projections indicate water storage deficits in most Southern Hemisphere basins during the summer.
This study supports SDGs 3, 6, and 14 by highlighting the importance of freshwater biodiversity for human and planetary health, and suggesting that local and regional efforts for monitoring and improving ecosystem health are essential for reversing the current crisis in this area.

As we pass the halfway point for the SDGs, many of the goals are worryingly off track and progress on 85% of the target indicators has stalled or even reversed. Through our information, products and people, RELX remains committed to advancing the Goals. Here are some of the ways that we continue to support their achievement.
