World Water Day

Part of the Sustainable Development Goals Programme

Water and climate change are inextricably linked. Water stocks are under increased pressure as the global population grows and natural resources are depleted; climate change only serves to exacerbate this situation. To mark this day, Springer Nature is delighted to present, as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Programme, a collection of research which is directly linked with the SDGs 6 and 13, and that can deepen the understanding of and offer scientific solutions for global water challenges.

The content below focuses on three areas: 1) protecting carbon sinks such as oceans and wetlands; 2) adopting climate-smart agricultural techniques; and 3) increasing the safe reuse of wastewater. We hope this research will provide support to researchers, administrators and all others who work on securing clean water for all. We also welcome your future contribution. Publishing your next project with Springer Nature.
