UNITED NATIONS TRANSFORMING OUR WORLD: THE AGENDA FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT A/RES/70/1. A guide for urban areas to achieve sustainability by recovering water, energy, and solids. Integrated Sustainable Urban Water, Energy, and Solids Management presents an integrated and sustainable system of urban water, used (waste) water, and waste solids management that would save and protect water quality, recover energy and other resources from used water and waste solids including plastics.
Country Transition and Benchmarking is one of the challenges identified by the World Economic Forum Platform for Shaping the Future of Energy and world’s transition to secure, affordable, reliable and sustainable energy has stalled, with little or no progress achieved in the past five years. Accelerating energy transition requires faster progress on all fronts, including. As a part of a new sustainable development roadmap, the United Nations approved the Agenda, which contains the Sustainable Development Goals, a call to action to protect the planet and guarantee the global well-being of people. These common goals require the active involvement of individuals, businesses, administrations and countries around the world.
Dr Sven Teske is a Research Director at the Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney. He has 25 years' experience in energy system analysis, grid-integration analysis for solar and wind power, renewable energy market surveys and forecasts, especially solar photovoltaics, concentrated solar power, onshore and offshore wind. A growing world population, dwindling agricultural resources and rising concerns about climate change are adding pressure to an already strained global food system. With global hunger on the rise after declining for over a decade, it is clear that countries, companies and individuals must reassess approaches to food production and consumption.
