The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) cover subjects such as ending poverty, achieving gender equality, ensuring access to water, energy, and food, and protecting ecosystems. Every SDG includes wording that refers directly or indirectly to a population or community or organisms, humans or otherwise. Therefore, the Population and Community Ontology (PCO) plays a crucial role in defining the language of the SDGs and their targets and indicators. This talk will describe the PCO and its applicability to sustainability studies.
