Whereas numerous studies have documented the multiple forms of physical, sexual, and psychological violence experienced by women, a thorough characterization of the abuses experienced by asylum-seeking women in the United States has not yet been undertaken. Contributing to SDGs 5 and 16, the authors' analysis of the affidavits for 85 cisgender, female asylum seekers who applied for forensic medical evaluations through a student-run asylum clinic, reveals a life-long pattern of multiple types of VAW inflicted by multiple perpetrators.

Biological Conservation, Volume 245, May 2020, 108580

This journal article addresses goals 13, 14 and 15 by discussing how refuges and refugia are important to conservation management because of their potential to protect species from difficult-to-manage threats such as changing climate, extreme events (e.g., drought, fire) and biotic threats (e.g., disease, invasive species).

Agricultural Water Management, Volume 235, 31 May 2020, 106150

Climate change and population growth generates a decrease in water availability around the world which can compromise the maintenance of sustainable agriculture. Thus, treated wastewater (TWW) became an alternative to minimize water shortage. However, this may indirectly affect the soil’s microbial properties. In this study different soils irrigated for 0, 1, 8 and 20 years with TWW were sampled and from the east central region of Tunisia. The objective was to investigate its effect on heavy metal accumulation and enzyme activities, contributing to SDGs 2, 15 and 13.

The Lancet, Volume 385, Issue 9977, 18–24 April 2015, Pages 1555-1566

This paper is part of a Lancet Series on violence against women and girls, and addresses SDGs 3 and 5 by reviewing the evidence base for a broad range of interventions aimed at reducing various forms of gender-based violence, from intimate partner violence and sexual assault to female genital mutilation and child marriage. The paper highlights the need for greater investment into violence prevention research and evaluation of programmes focusing on low-income and middle-income countries, as the majority of high-quality evidence is skewed towards high-income countries.
