The United Nations General Assembly decided that International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples would be observed every year on 9th August. On this day, people from around the world are encouraged to help spread the UN’s message on the protection and promotion of the rights of indigenous peoples. Elsevier is pleased to share this special collection of freely available articles to help spread awareness about this important topic. Please feel free to download and share these papers.
Climate adaptation and mitigation strategies aim at strengthening existing food systems and infrastructure of agro-ecosystems, to make them more resilient to the effects of climate-led adversities.
This chapter advances SDG goals 7, 9, and 11 by improving our ability to use smart grids to provide stable, demand- and market-responsive energy.
A Series paper in the context of SDGs 11 and 12, analysing healthy city planning policy indicators for 25 cities across 19 countries, highlighting the need to strengthen policy frameworks for health-enhancing city planning, particularly in low-income and middle-income countries.
A Series paper in the context of SDGs 11 and 12 that developed comparable open-source spatial indicators of urban design and transport features that support health and sustainability, for 25 diverse cities in 19 countries.
Meat induces large environmental impact while supplying important nutrients, and meat substitutes are increasingly adopted as direct replacers of meat products. This study assessed the environmental impact of a pork schnitzel and two soy-based schnitzels in terms of three different functional units to reflect the products’ functions as meal components and suppliers of high quality proteins. For a functional unit of 1 kg of product, the pork schnitzel induces the largest environmental impact for most environmental impact indicators.
