Under SDG 1, there is also a more detailed description of what this might mean in terms of different targets. In our case, Table 15 should be seen as an attempt to identify important areas that connect to different social foundations. For each of the areas where there is a match between the social foundation and indicators that are assessed in SLCA, relevant targets will have to be discussed in light of the speci fi c study at hand. In some cases, the mapping of the targets, goals and indicators is relatively weak. In particular, neither Leach et al. ( 2013 ) nor Raworth ( 2013 ) are completely clear on what they mean by resilience to shocks though the latter refers to poverty as the key problem affecting resilience, which is why we might connect it to a SDG concerned with inclusive and sustainable cities. On the other hand, the indicators in the last column are more to do with workplace safety, and while safe is one of the descriptors of that SDG, one might equally connect the indicators we have to the social sustainability target of decent job . This is an example of the challenges faced by analysts attempting to associate goals objectives and indicators for socially sustainable development. The fi nal step in our process that is needed to be able to evaluate interventions is the translation of global targets to the market segment that is addressed in the Will Clothing Be Sustainable?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
