The SDGs offer oppotunities for closer environment-poverty integration. However, to be transformative, they need a broadening of measures and indicators. This paper argues that indicators should include constituent roles of environment in wellbeing and poverty, furthering goals 1 and 3.

Data collection methods and poverty measures have not caught up with the reality of an increasingly urbanised world; as a result, urban poverty may be underestimated. This has important implications for targeting interventions and allocating resources in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This paper contributes to SDG 1 by providing recommendation on how to improve urban poverty measurement.

A paper by the World Bank Data for Goals Group showing that, after conditioning on other individual and household characteristics, having fewer than three children, having greater educational attainment, and living in an urban area are strongly and positively associated with welfare. The latest World Bank estimate is that 770 million people lived in extreme poverty in 2013. The paper examines the factors involved in striving to meet the requirements of SDG 1 and 4.

Contributing to SDG 1 and SDG 2, this paper shows that despite progress in reducing extreme poverty, little progress has been made in reducing the number of people living on between $1.25 and $2 a day and it provides updated estimates of rural and urban poverty for regions throughout the developing world. Social protection programmes are a key way for governments to support the poor. Secondly, agricultural input subsidies are a key government tool for boosting agricultural production, especially that of smallholder farmers. This paper is one of the first to examine both social protection and agricultural input subsidies in alleviating poverty.

Increasing attention has been given to historically and culturally significant traditional villages in China in the past five years. Rural tourism has been recognized as a key approach to rural development and poverty alleviation. This paper proposes an integrative and sustainable Rural Tourism-based Traditional Village Revitalization model to better understand the relationship between rural tourism and village revitalization, working towards SDG1 (no poverty).
Ecological infrastructure (EI) refers to ecosystems that deliver services to society, functioning as a nature-based equivalent of, or complement to, built infrastructure. EI is critical for socio-economic development, supporting a suite of development imperatives at local, national and international scales. This paper presents the myriad of ways that EI supports sustainable development, using South Africa and the South African National Development Plan as a case study, linking to the Sustainable Development Goals on a global level. We show the need for EI across numerous development and sustainability issues, including food security, water provision, and poverty alleviation contributing to several SDGs not least, goals 1, 11 and 17.
Bangladesh is one of the world's most vulnerable countries to climate change. This study combines environmental and human elements to assess socio-environmental outcomes.
