Grantham Scholar Nicole Kennard has written 2 chapters for Springer’s Encyclopedia of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Until now, the SDGs have not been addressed in an integrated way for a comprehensive, research-based publication. But this new encyclopedia from the prestigious Springer publishing house addresses that gap in information.

There are 17 volumes of the Springer’s Encyclopedia of the UN Sustainable Development Goals – one for each SDG. And Nicole has written 2 chapters for this series, both for Volume 2: Zero Hunger.
Her first chapter explores Food Waste Management. It addresses how reducing food waste is integral for ensuring future food security. This is because nearly 1/3 of all edible food produced is wasted.
And the second chapter is called: Urban Agriculture: Opportunities and Challenges for Sustainable Development. This chapter explores how urban argiculture can be used as a tool globally – both to reduce hunger and enhance food security.
Urban agriculture contributes to local food security by improving access to fresh and healthy foods and enhancing health and wellbeing for those involved in urban agriculture. It also provides a way for those in cities to reconnect to their food system and natural spaces.
