Integrating Science in UN Sustainable Development Goals

The 2020s will be a transformative decade for human interaction with the earth’s environment, largely inspired by the United Nations’ call for global action through 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Scientific research and environmental management practices can lead the way to sustainability in all sectors of our society. Several SDGs, in particular, aim to reduce our environmental footprint on the planet and preserve, protect and restore the planet’s ecological well-being, notably:

  • osphere, society and economySDG#2 - Progress towards sustainable food production
  • SDG#6 - Sustainable management of water
  • SDG#11 - Nature-based solutions in the built environment
  • SDG#13 - Strategies responsive to climate change
  • SDG#14 - Focus on oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development
  • SDG#15 - Actions to protect and restore biodiversity

These six SDGs are the focus of IEAM’s call for papers. To promote understanding of the science–policy nexus and enhance global awareness of the value of sustainable use of the planet’s resources, IEAM is inviting papers describing cutting-edge environmental research and policy solutions relevant to promoting sustainability. Scientists and professionals are invited to present their work from the perspective of how the science community contributes to SDG implementation through new technologies, assessment and monitoring methods, management best practices and scientific research. Papers may describe case studies, regulatory policies, business strategies and science-to-policy assessments aimed at sustainability in various economic and social sectors around the world. Papers may focus on different aspects of issues concerning the conservation and sustainable use of land, air or water resources at the global, regional and national levels.

Successful submissions will benefit from international visibility through publication as examples of thought leadership. Online publication anticipated for late 2020.
