The best-documented example of a solution provided by insects to address the SDGs is the value chains of insect farming as feed and food. In countries recovering from conflict, agricultural development should focus on restoring food production by smallholder farmers (SDG 1 and 2), improving their socio-economic position (SDG 8), and contributing to peace (SDG 16).

Ecosystem services, the benefits nature provides to people, underpin all dimensions of human wellbeing. It is therefore crucial to integrate them into strategies for achieving SDGs, in particular those related to agriculture and health (SDGs 1, 2, 3).
This journal article addresses goals 14, 2 and 1 by exploring progress evaluations toward SDG 14 (Life below Water) and intersecting social goals presented in submissions to the UN High-Level Political Forum.
