The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, proposed by the United Nations in 2015, set 17 goals (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/?menu=1300) that challenge nations to act in a global partnership towards a better future. The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together recent challenges and scientific developments addressing decision making within the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). All these stakeholders involved in the decision-making process do not all share the same objectives. Operation research models can play a fundamental role in reaching decisions for a better future.
The objective of this Special Issue is to publish rigorous research focusing on the integration of different perspectives in decision making towards “Good Health and Well-Being”, “Sustainable Cities and Communities”, and “Responsible consumption and production” goals. Works focusing on the other goals are also welcomed.
Without being exhaustive, the topics of interest include the following fields:
