IHOPE and the SDGs: Zero hunger, Climate action, & Decent work

IHOPE and the SDGs: Zero hunger, Climate action, & Decent work

What can the past tell us about about sustainability in food production, creating sustainable socioeconomic systems, and how it can help us deal with the impacts of climate change? Today we look at one of IHOPE’s publications and its relationship to the SDGs.

Anthropological archaeology professor Junko Habu shares her lessons from archaeology and ethnography projects focusing on the Jomon people of Japan. The possible effects of overspecialisation on resilience, and the importance of Traditional Ecological Knowledge and local networks are some of the main findings that you can read more about in the publication Jomon Food Diversity, Climate Change,
and Long-Term Sustainability: What I Have Learned by Doing Archaeological and Ethnographic Studies in Japan in Society for American Archaeology 2018.

In this post series, IHOPE and the SDGs, we introduce you to previously published research from the IHOPE network connected to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The relevance of the research was identified by the OSDG artificial intelligence software, and is subsequently manually reviewed.
