Drinking water supply requires energy, which in turn emits greenhouse gases with undesirable climate impacts. Water conservation, therefore, offers environmental benefits by reducing such emissions.

A Viewpoint in support of SDGs 2, 3, and 15, highlighting current contributions of trees and forests to the global food system and presenting recommendations to leverage these contributions as part of efforts to reshape food systems to better support healthy diets and environmental sustainability.
A Personal View in support of SDGs 2 and 3, proposing recommendations for improving future trials in the field of nutrition and cognitive health, particularly in relation to dementia, and highlighting the need for testing of both personalised interventions and generalisable public health interventions.
A Health Policy paper in support of SDGs 2 and 3, calling on the World Health Assembly to pass a resolution for universal mandatory folic acid fortification to prevent the development of spina bifida and anencephaly and to help countries reach their 2030 Sustainable Development Goals on child mortality and health equity.
This webinar series is supported by Elsevier journals to help advance science & engineering for a sustainable future for human and ecological health through global interactions. The focus of each webinar will support at least one of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. See https://sdgresources.relx.com This specific webinar will focus on "Recent Progress on Urban Heat Mitigation Technologies" presented by Prof. Mat Santamouris, Distinguished Professor, Arts Design and Architecture, UNSW Sydney.

The eighth official RELX SDG Inspiration Day was held virtually on May 9, 2022. The event gave thought leaders, corporate representatives, investors, governments, and NGOs a common platform to discuss the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 16, namely, “Peace, justice and strong institutions”. Several notable keynote speakers and panellists shared their insights on how to achieve this goal and the current challenges that need to be resolved to do so.
Figure 1. Prevalence of modern contraceptive methods among women of reproductive age (15–49 years) and demand satisfied with modern contraceptive methods by location, 2019
This Article supports SDG 3, 4, and 5 by highlighting that more than 160 million women aged 15-24 years globally have a need for contraception that is not currently met by existing family planning programs, thus hindering or eliminating their education and employment opportunities.
An Article on the global prevalence, mortality, and disability-adjusted life-years of hepatitis B, in the context of SDG 3, focusing specifically on a comparison of estimates to WHO elimination targets.
graphical abstract from Influence of hepatitis C viral parameters on pregnancy complications and risk of mother-to-child transmission
Hepatitis C has increased in women of childbearing age and has important implications in women who become pregnant and their infants. The effect that hepatitis C has on pregnancy outcomes was evaluated as well as the rate of hepatitis C transmission to infants in a large database with linked mother-infant records. It was found that active hepatitis C during pregnancy increased the risk of pregnancy complications. Also identified were very low rates of testing of infants born to mothers with hepatitis C but found higher rates of hepatitis C transmission to infants in mothers with higher virus levels.
With the introduction of nanotechnology in the food industry, new and innovative techniques have started to develop, which holds a promising future to end malnutrition and help achieve United Nations Sustainable Developmental Goal-2 (UN SDG-2), named as zero hunger. This review highlights the need for nanofortification of vitamin B-complex in food matrix to address challenges faced by conventional fortification methods (bioavailability, controlled release, physicochemical stability, and shelf life).
