Call for papers: Animal Welfare and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
30 Nov 2020
The journal Sustainability is inviting papers for a special issue, “Animal Welfare and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals”.
Papers should focus on the extent to which the sustainable development goals (SDGs) are compatible, or not, with improving animal welfare. Studies can, for example, relate to the animal welfare consequences of reducing the sector’s impact on natural resources and biodiversity, or the effects of more animal-friendly housing and management conditions on SDGs or defining sustainable development options that include good animal welfare. Papers may also address underlying structural, organisational, market, and trade aspects that affect the interaction between SDGs and animal welfare.
