Hunger, food, water and shelter

Food, water and shelter are basic human needs, yet for millions of people around the world these are still not currently being met.

The issues of unequal distribution of and access to resources covered in UN Sustainable Development Goal 1: No Poverty, as well as the need for sustainability in how we approach food, water and shelter covered in Goal 2: Zero Hunger and Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production are central themes to many of the products we publish.

Our Environment and Sustainability catalogue examines the social justice dimension of environmental sustainability, in climate change and environmental politics, while - across other subject areas - we advance theories and practice developed globally on how to create sustainable economies, including highlighting new movements in food sharing and food charities and uncovering illegal practices within the food industry.
