In the year 2000, the international community took a bold step toward tackling some of the most urgent challenges holding back human development by defining a set of goals known as the Millennium Development Goals (www.unmillenniumproject.org/goals). In 2015, these goals were replaced with a set of more pragmatic goals termed the Sustainable Development Goals. One of the most important enablers in achieving these goals is engineering innovations. Electronics engineering innovations will be a major force in this endeavor. There are a number of electronics-engineering-related projects around the globe working toward a sustainable world. The projects have both societal and economic benefits attached to them. In this topic, state-of-the-art research advances in the application of engineering for sustainable development are presented.
