This paper contributes to SDG 1 by providing recommendation on how to improve urban poverty measurement.

Household methodologies (HHM) intervene directly in intra-household gender relations to strengthen overall smallholder agency and efficacy as economic agents and development actors. Strengthening women's agency is one mechanism for progressing towards collaborative, systemic farm management. It is expected this will contribute to improved farm resilience in the face of climate change, strengthen food and nutrition security, and improve other development indicators related to SDGs 2 and 5.

The SDGs are all connected. Success in one goal often relies on success in another. The science supporting the SDGs needs to reflect these connections, which is what the Perspectives Project aims to achieve: enabling collaboration between experts from all over the world. The project addresses a core question: how is the SDG agenda influencing scholarly debates in different research areas, and vice-versa? The reviews will cover the breadth of the SDGs and will be published as part of three special issues in three key journals.
