The pandemic has had far-reaching, devastating effects on human society, the natural world, and the environment on a global scale. The many links in the food production chain, particularly agriculture and cattle, are also badly impacted in terms of product sustainability and monetary losses. There has been a considerable drop in meat, milk, and egg production because of the global epidemic. National and international movement limitations enacted as part of public health sector control efforts have impacted the accessibility of inputs for livestock producers and farm outputs, veterinary services, farmworkers, and animal care businesses. As COVID-19 impacted the global livestock sector which is continuing, understanding and implementing sustainable approaches in livestock production is needed for both academia and industry. To respond to this need, this study carried out a systematic review of the existing literature on the impact of COVID‑19 on the sustainability of livestock performance and welfare on a global scale. Significant consequences on livestock performance sustainability, worldwide animal welfare, and mitigation methods are discussed in this paper in light of the recent outbreak of COVID-19.</p> 2023-03-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Global Sustainability Research The Role of Parliamentarians in Implementing SDGs in Pakistan: A Qualitative Study Incorporating Lessons Learned across Eight Countries 2023-05-05T14:56:32+00:00 Syed Asad Ali Shah Syed Ali Mujtaba Zaidi <p>The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a comprehensive framework for addressing social, economic, and environmental challenges facing countries around the world. The role of parliaments in implementing the SDGs has been widely recognized, but the extent of their impact remains uncertain, particularly in developing countries such as Pakistan. This paper aims to investigate the role of parliament in implementing the SDGs in Pakistan and to draw lessons from other countries that have successfully integrated the SDGs into their legislative processes. To achieve this objective, a qualitative research design was employed, which included a comprehensive analysis of lessons learned from other countries. The findings suggest that while the Pakistani parliament has taken steps towards aligning its policies with the SDGs, there is still a long way to go in terms of effective implementation. Lessons learned from other countries indicate that parliamentary oversight, public participation, and capacity building are key factors in successful implementation of the SDGs. The paper concludes with a series of recommendations for enhancing the role of parliament in implementing the SDGs in Pakistan.</p> 2023-05-13T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Global Sustainability Research Investigating the nexus between energy consumption, industrialization, urbanization, economic growth, and Carbon dioxide emission: Panel data analysis from the Belt and Road Initiative countries 2022-10-16T06:31:29+00:00 Hayat Khan Robeena Bibi Sumaira Le Thi Kim Oanh Itbar khan <p>An increase in urbanization rises the use of energy in urban areas which leads to high carbon dioxide discharge and worsen environmental quality. Industrialization and economic growth are also linked with environmental quality and thus need to investigate the effect of these factors on environmental quality. This study uses panel data from 1976 to 2019 and investigate the nexus between urbanization, industrialization, economic growth, energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions in the belt and road initiative countries using static and dynamic panel models. The findings reveals that the effect of urbanization, energy consumption, industrialization and economic growth on carbon dioxide emission is positive and it reduce environmental quality however, international trade significantly reduce carbon dioxide emission. This study further confirms the existence of a U-shape link between urbanization and carbon dioxide while the square term of economic growth doesn’t validate the Environmental Kuznets curve hypothesis. The findings of this study have considerable policy suggestions regarding carbon emission mitigation in term of urbanization, energy use, industrialization and economic growth.</p> 2023-04-14T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Global Sustainability Research Financial Performance Analysis of Engineering Companies: An Empirical Study during the COVID-19 Pandemic in Bangladesh 2023-04-04T12:55:08+00:00 Fahmida Begum <p>As the largest crisis of the current world, the global pandemic “COVID-19” has wreaked havoc on the global economy, disrupting people's lives and wreaking havoc on financial markets and business industries. This scenario is almost the same in engineering companies. Due to the lockdown, a significant portion of construction activities were mostly restricted in the previous year, which had a massive impact on this sector. The pandemic's impact has caused numerous setbacks in this sector around the world. This study focused on 40 engineering firms and analyzed data from the COVID-19 period of 2019-2021. The key purpose of this study was to analyse the financial performance based on the determinants that have the most influence on the financial performance of the company. The findings of generalized linear model (GLM) show that, during the COVID-19 period, LNGPR had a positive impact on LNFP in engineering firms in Bangladesh, indicating that a 1% increase in LNGPR can increase LNFP by 0.80%. The variables LNLR and LNNPR have a positive impact on LNFP in engineering firms in Bangladesh, with estimated coefficient values of 0.44 and 1.22, respectively. LNDR has a significant impact on LNFP in engineering firms and a 1% increase in LNDR can enhance LNFP by 0.76 percent. However, variable sales growth has a negative impact during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a positive sign that most of the variables have a significant and positive association with financial performance, except for sales growth. The authority should implement policies to restore sales growth and consistency in production distribution across countries. </p> 2023-04-19T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Global Sustainability Research A Facile Review on the Legal Issues and Challenges Concerning the Conservation and Preservation of Biodiversity 2023-03-21T02:41:53+00:00 Paul Atagame Aidonojie Nosakhare Okuonghae Roseline Obada Moses-oke Majekodunmi Toyin Afolabi <p>The defective environmental changes caused by climate change have a drastic harmful effect on natural habitats and species. This is concerning the fact that there are signs that the increase in the intensity of temperature often has (caused by human activities) an effect on biodiversity. However, the threat posed by climate change to biodiversity is expected to increase, given the harmful human activities. The scientist has identified that if the present rates of global warming continue by 2030, it will result in a significant detrimental impact on biodiversity. In this regard, this study adopts a doctrinal method of study in examining the current causes of climate change, the effect of climate change on biodiversity, and several global legal frameworks concerning the preservation and conservation of biodiversity. The study also detailed the lacuna inherent in the conservation and preservation of biodiversity, and possible legal and scientific method for revamping biodiversity. The study further concluded and recommended that adopting this possible solution it will curtail harmful human activities that often cause climate change that negatively affect biodiversity.</p> 2023-04-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Global Sustainability Research
