This research contributes to SDGs 15 (life on land), 7 (affordable and clean energy), 6 (clean water and sanitation) and 12 (responsible consumption and production). The study specifically maps and quantifies nitrogen nutrient flows in a local food-energy-water system and indicates how such modeling could inform decision-making for sustainable management of nutrients.
Directly contributing to SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation) and SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy), this paper proposes a solar energy enabled desalination process for producing fresh water, electricity generation and hydrogen production.
This paper contributes to SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production). This paper demonstrates, from a food consumption perspective, the potential of life cycle thinking in understanding the complex and often “hidden” linkages between food, energy and water systems.
To further SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production), this article advocates transdisciplinary approaches across supply chains, industry and ecological technology for ensuring the sustainability of food, energy, and water systems.
Linking to Goals 2, 6, 12, 15, and 17, this website catalogues and facilitates water stewardship projects in river basins and regions around the world.
Linking to Goal 12, this is the UN Global Compact Sustainable Supply Chains website

In reference to Goal 12, this article reviews the industry activities, policy initiatives and research projects aiming to secure an adequate supply of raw materials that have recently been initiated in Europe.
This paper presents a case study around emerging technologies for data storage and what their implementation at mass scale might mean for existing supply chains and market dynamics for certain critical materials, looking to address goal 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) and goal 12 (sustainable consumption and production).
