This book presents the ever progressing state of the art in evaluating climate change strategies and action.

The Network of Regional Governments for Sustainable Development publishes the "Regions Adapt 2016" report.

Reduction of preterm births (>37 completed weeks of gestation) would substantially reduce neonatal and infant mortality, and deleterious health effects in survivors. Maternal fine particulate matter (PM2.5) exposure has been identified as a possible risk factor contributing to preterm birth. The aim of this study was to produce the first estimates of ambient PM2.5-associated preterm births for 183 individual countries and globally.

In a cross-discipline study, we carried out an extensive literature review to increase understanding of vulnerability indicators used in both earthquake- and flood vulnerability assessments. We provide insights into potential improvements in both fields by identifying and comparing quantitative vulnerability indicators. Indicators have been categorised into physical- and social categories, and then, where possible, further subdivided into measurable and comparable indicators.

Transforming the global supply chains for beef, palm oil, soy, and pulp and paper so that they are truly sustainable is a $200-billion-a-year investment opportunity, according to a new report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Tropical Forest Alliance 2020 (TFA 2020).

A new report enables agricultural companies to set science-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions targets for key commodities.

The report, published by GreenBiz Group in partnership with Trucost, provides a global view on sustainable business, from basic emissions to leadership attributes, such as how many stock exchanges around the world require listed companies to disclose environmental data, or the amount of money being divested from fossil fuel company stocks.

We can only solve the climate crisis if we cut industrial meat and dairy production and take meaningful steps towards agroecology and food sovereignty, says a new report released by the non-profit organisation GRAIN.

As a flexible and competitive source of renewable energy, bioenergy can play a key role in decarbonising energy systems by responding to the needs of a wide range of demand profiles in the electricity, buildings, and transport sectors.

Undernutrition is a multi-sectoral problem with multi-sectoral solutions. By applying integrated approaches, the impact, coherence and efficiency of the action can be improved.
