Since its adoption in September 2015, the 2030 Agenda has laid the foundations for model of shared prosperity for a sustainable world in which all people can lead a peaceful and prosperous life freely and on a healthy planet. There is a less than a decade until we reach 2030, in the midst of a difficult pandemic that is laying bare the deep inequalities affecting not only our health, but also our quality of life and the economy of the countries, among other issues. It will depend on us whether this situation leads us to the point of no return or, on the contrary, whether it represents an incentive to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the established date.
The Open Access journal Applied Sciences (ISSN 2076-3417; CiteScore 2.458; IF 2.474) is currently running a Special Issue titled "The Status of the Sustainable Development Goals: Achievements and Expectations". It is devoted to publishing high quality papers that analyze the most significant and cutting-edge research of solutions that will contribute to the fulfilment of the SDGs. Contributions regarding people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnerships are expected.
We cordially invite you to submit a paper to this exciting Special Issue. It could be a full review or an original research article. Your papers will be highly advertised and widely circulated. Everyone will be able to easily access and read them, as this Special Issue will be freely available online. It would be a pleasure for us if you would agree to participate.
