This research supports SDGs 2 (zero hunger), 15 (life on land) and 17 (partnerships for the goals). Ecological intensification aims to use ecosystem services (e.g. pollination and pest management) to sustain agricultural production while minimising environmental impact. Kleijn et al. discuss the benefits of ecological intensification and ways that scientists can better communicate these to farmers.
This analysis of 160 cases of artificial intelligence (AI) being used for social good touches on all 17 of the SDGs, with Goal 3, good health and wellbeing, being particularly well documented in terms of AI for good.

Municipal wastewater is a remarkable energy source but in order to recover the energy present efficiently, it is crucial to up-concentrate the organics in wastewaters. This paper contributes to SDG 7 by providing a comprehensive evaluation of the current practices applied to up-concentrate organic matter, as well as various up-to-date treatment configurations.
