    INTRODUCTION
    The Sustainable Biodiversity & Environment Unit was created to focus on integrated and transdisciplinary studies of biodiversity related to sustainability issues. The sustainable biodiversity system comprising diversity within species, between species, and of ecosystems has been researched to realize the sustainable development concept based on scientific and humanities input, especially in the evaluation of physical ecosystem changes and the impact of human activities on the ecosystem to allow for sustainable management of the environment. Without effective measures to conserve biodiversity and use its components in a sustainable manner, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will not be achievable. Given the need for biodiversity and healthy ecosystems to achieve the 2030 Agenda, it is not surprising that many Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) include targets that reflect their important role. The role of biodiversity and healthy ecosystems is thus reflected not only in SDG 14 (life below water) and SDG 15 (life on land), but also in many other goals and targets.
