Sustainable Development Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Natural and built environments are vital sustainability and resilience objectives and interact with several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Climate change and the depletion of natural resources have shifted priorities toward environmental resilience and interaction with social equity and infrastructure development. Hence, the manifestation of this shift is apparent in various activities across Fresno State. The geographical characteristics of Fresno State in Central California, as a major agricultural center, have provided an opportunity for scholars to focus on recognized environmental challenges concerning water shortage and air pollution. Further, aging infrastructure has also been a priority for mitigating challenges in the built environment and development footprints.
