The field of human-computer interaction (HCI) has grown to include scores of different disciplines and encompass elements both tangible and intangible. Incorporating HCI into any domain results in a variety of user requirements, needs, and experiences to accommodate changing conditions. Sustainable development presents unique challenges, but the implementation of technology can provide many benefits.

HCI Solutions for Achieving Sustainable Development Goals is a collection of innovative research that explores the latest innovations in human-computer interaction as a tool to achieve sustainable development. While highlighting a broad range of topics including infrastructure, education, and user experience, this book is ideally designed for programmers, software engineers, government officials, policymakers, environmentalists, academicians, researchers, and students.
