This critical review evaluates environmental microplastic research methodologies. Developing standardized sampling techniques may advance the efficiency, accuracy and ease of future microplastic research. Improved understanding of microplastic impacts will advance progress towards multiple SDG's.
This book chapter addresses goals 6, 9, and 12 and 14 by presenting the feasibility of traditional and nature-based in situ treatment processes for beverage effluents addressing the environmental problems associated with its management and providing the relevant socioeconomic and environmental values.

This research directly relates to SDG 13 (climate action ) and SDG 14 (life below water). The authors here argue that we need to identify the coral reefs that are less vulnerable to climate change as they may be best positioned to survive and thus regenerate degraded coral reefs in the future.

This article contributes to goal 15 by arguing that the SDG portfolio can trigger a major step towards more holistic land use perspectives at the agriculture-forestry interface. This, in turn, has the potential to initiate institutional change to enhance dynamic sustainability.

SDG 5 - gender equality - has the potential to enhance food security through its attention to women's access to land and natural resources. However, it fails to address women's limited access to irrigation, credit and other inputs. As such, this paper calls for goal 5 to be expanded through synergies with other SDGs.

Forests are essential to the SDGs and can further multiple SDGs simultaneously. This paper contributes to goal 15 by discussing the importance of integrated, innovative and inclusive governance systems to ensure that efforts to advance the SDGs can better benefit from, and provide support for, forests.

To advance SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production), 7 (clean energy) and 15 (life on land), this article specifically focuses on co-production and optimization of food and energy systems within the constraints of ecological sustainability. Specifically, it highlights how the role of nature and ecosystem services could be incorporated in engineering design.

This article provides an opportunity to reflect on whether natural resource use, as viewed through the Food-Energy-Water (FEW) Nexus lens, provides a useful basis for guiding integrated environmental management. Addressing and contributing to SDG 15 (life on land), SDG 14 (life below water) and SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production).
