Samuel M. Gorton, Chapter 41 - Integrated agroecological technology networks for food, bioenergy, and biomaterial production, Editor(s): Anju Dahiya, Bioenergy (Second Edition), Academic Press, 2020, Pages 767-788, ISBN 9780128154977, https://doi.org/10.1016/B978-0-12-815497-7.00041-5.

This book chapter advances SDGs 6, 7 and 11 by discussing how we can create integrated ecological technologies that transform natural resources into anthropocentric goods and services, while restoring the land and reducing pollution by returning beneficial materials or energy to the ecosystem.

This article addresses SDG 3 and 10 by characterising the spread of COVID-19 in Brazil, showing that existing socioeconomic inequalities, rather than age or health status, determined the initial course of the epidemic. Areas with high socioeconomic vulnerability were disproportionately affected, and these results suggest that targeted policies are needed to protect the most vulnerable groups.

One Health approach addresses good health and well-being at different levels of environment and human health . In this example One Health integrates antibiotic resistance among humans, animals, and the environment. Understanding this valuable and insightful process will help to restore biodiversity and ecosystems heading to a healthy planet.

Solar photovoltaics (PV) is an energy technology that is already contributing substantially to CO2 emissions mitigation. Here, the authors analyse the factors that lie behind the huge cost reductions of solar PV and identify innovations in the pipeline that could contribute to maintaining a high learning rate. Moreover, this work shows how widespread Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) - which are used to model decarbonization pathways compatible with the Paris Agreement – need to evolve to better reflect the role of solar PV in future low-carbon energy scenarios. This closely relates to SDG 7 and 13.
