Employment decent work for all and social protection

To help create awareness and observe the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) on 3 December 2022, Elsevier is proud to showcase a special issue of freely available journal articles and book chapters to share.
This Article supports SDGs 5, 8, and 10 by investigating the prevalence of workplace sexual harassment and violence by demographic factors and work sectors among Icelandic women, providing nuanced targets for prevention and for public policies aimed at promoting women’s safety in the work environment.
In a 2019 national survey, 3.1% (95% confidence interval, 2.6%-3.5%) of practicing US physicians self-reported a disability, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act.2 Although the prevalence of reported disabilities in physicians is less than the general population, physicians may choose to not disclose their disabilities, especially hidden disabilities.
An Article on mental health and wellbeing among working-age adults, in the context of SDGs 3, 8, and 10, focusing specifically on the effects of changes in income on mental health, especially for people in poverty or in LMICs.
This paper uses a novel approach to re-examine the relationship between income inequality and pollution and shows that protecting the environment can have an added advantage of creating a just and inclusive society. Pollution threatens health and livelihoods of vulnerable groups, in turn making them even more vulnerable, creating a vicious cycle. We investigate if sustainable environmental policies can mitigate the impact of pollution on these vulnerable groups, while addressing inclusion.

In 2011 ICAO published a report about projected pilot and training capacity shortage (ICAO, 2011). To solve this problem, several studies have been carried out, and forecasts of the required number of pilots for the next 10–20 years are constantly being updated. Universities have begun introducing pilot training into their aviation courses, although only US airlines require a degree from the candidates to work as a pilot.
