Climate change

Climate change, a long-term shift in global weather patterns and average temperatures, is one of the most pressing challenges addressed by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is directly targeted by SDG 13 (Climate Action), which calls for urgent measures to combat climate change and its impacts. However, climate change also cuts across virtually all other SDGs. For instance, it threatens to undermine progress towards SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) by disrupting agricultural production, and exacerbates problems of clean water availability, a concern of SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation). It also impacts SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being) due to increased heatwaves and spread of vector-borne diseases. Furthermore, climate change can induce migration and conflicts, affecting SDG 16 (Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions). Hence, tackling climate change is integral to achieving the SDGs.

This article is an in-depth analysis of the challenges and solutions for the circular economy. This article relates to SDG 12, Responsible Consumption and production.

Recent Advancements in Wastewater Management: Implications and Biological Solutions, 2023, pp 109-132

This chapter aligns with Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation and Goal 13: Climate Action by discussing the role and challenges of wastewater irrigation in agriculture in response to declining freshwater resources.
The survey presented here was conducted to better understand public perceptions of climate change, human impacts and the value and management of marine and coastal ecosystems.
title of article
This article, relating to SDGs 7 and 13, details Europe's race to maintain its position as a leader in renewable energy as global green wars intensify. Although Europe is investing heavily in new green technologies, they face significant challenges including increasing competition from countries like China and the US, as well as political and economic challenges.
This chapter advances UN SGD goal 2: Zero Hunger by providing insight into adapting agriculture to changing climate conditions.

This article supports SDGs 7 and 13 by achieving the efficient CO2 capture via connecting a packed bubble column (S-PBC) contactor in series, combined with machine learning and multi-objective optimization based on Enhanced Weathering (EW) technology.
Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22nd every year to demonstrate support for environmental protection. The theme for Earth day 2023 is Invest In Our Planet. Elsevier is proud to highlight these freely accessible book chapters and journal articles in honour of this event.
This article advances SDG # 13, 1 and 11 by identifying ways to meet the dual objectives of poverty eradication and staying within the biophysical safe operating space of the climate via integrated policy packages supporting strong economic development, ambitious educational attendance, sustainable dietary choices, low fossil fuel consumption and energy demand, and lower fertilizer consumption.
This paper synthesized current knowledge of mesoscale eddies and their impacts on the marine ecosystem across the North Pacific and its marginal Seas, across the CCS region , the northeastern North Pacific and the Bering Sea, the western boundary of the North Pacific and marginal seas, and the extratropical open North Pacific. How climate change will modify mesoscale processes remains a key open challenge.
