The paper presents a scientific framework for assessing marine biodiversity and reveals significant gaps in our understanding and protection of ocean biodiversity, emphasizing the need for more strategic conservation efforts to safeguard marine ecosystems and their contributions to human well-being.
The research on enveloped viruses' response to environmental factors supports SDG 3 by informing effective disinfection strategies, crucial for preventing disease spread and promoting public health.
Human health, in the coming decades (and already in some “front-running” regions), is in peril. Although some authorities warn that over-stating such risks can induce paralysis and despair, under-stating them will not generate the intense action that is required. The impact of climate change on the Earth system is now so significant that the next ice age will likely be delayed by at least 50,000 years [201]. If humans do not rapidly change their collective behavior, then this may be their most enduring legacy. It is hoped that this chapter makes a small contribution to SDG3.

The paper underscores the urgency of addressing climate change's impact on biodiversity through transboundary conservation efforts, offering guidelines for designing climate-smart marine protected area (MPA) networks in regions like the California Bight, highlighting the need for international coordination to ensure effective protection and adaptation strategies for vulnerable species and ecosystems.
As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning become increasingly embedded in recruiting and hiring processes, employers must be aware of the potential discrimination risks these tools can pose. This article relates to SDGs 5, 8, and 10
The increased exposure to violence and sexual crimes among Indigenous women, girls, and Two Spirit people results from longstanding historical trauma and anti-Indigenous racism. The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit People (MMIWG2S) movement emerged as a result of the need for governments and organisations in the USA and Canada to act against acute violence towards Indigenous people

With a pressing climate emergency and increasing interconnectedness, the need for action on health at a global level is greater than ever. Achieving Universal Health Coverage with a strong base in primary healthcare is essential. This must be accompanied by policies to address the socioeconomic and environmental determinants of ill health, supporting SDG3.

This Personal View supports SDG 3 and 10 by explaining how children's health outcomes in the USA could be improved by adhering to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child - ie, adopt policies that promote children's rights and wellbeing. This would help to address the comparatively poor health outcomes of children in the USA despite the high per-capita health spending.
