This article addresses goals 13, 14, and 15 by discussing the common methods of evaluating the management of biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services in natural environments.
An improved understanding of the impact of conservation interventions is needed so that limited conservation funds can be better targeted to maximize biodiversity outcomes. This can be achieved by building a clear evidence base of what conservation interventions have worked, then translating the evidence into new contexts to design effective future interventions.
Advancing goals 3, 12, 14 and 17, this article proposes an informed plan for countries to work together for the safe and responsible use of chemicals.

Focussing on SDG's 3 (good health and well-being), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water), this review piece identifies limitations in current methodologies and practices used to study microplastics in seafood. Future studies may be improved by harmonising research methods, including sampling, isolation, quantification, polymer identification, and contamination management procedures.

This paper critically reviews current scientific knowledge surrounding microplastics in the environment, supporting SDGs 9.5 (enhanced scientific research), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).
The number of countries with a national development plan has more than doubled, from about 62 in 2006 to 134 in 2018. This paper analyses the resurgence of national development planning, identifies the types and content of the plans, and their implications and interactions with the SDGs and the global development agenda.

This research develops SDGs 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land). A new recycling process of the common plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) could help with the urgent problem of ever-increasing amounts of plastic waste in our oceans and the environment.

This article contributes to SDG 13 (climate action) and SDG 14 (life below water), highlighting the importance of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) as effective instruments to conserve biodiversity and its resources.
This study compares different microplastic sampling methods for water, sediment and biota. This supports SDGs 9.5 (enhanced scientific research) 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water).
This article explores a previously overlooked form of microplastic pollution. Directly relevant to SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production), SDG 15 (life on land) and SDG 14 (life below water), this research investigates the interactions between tire derived microplastics and organic matter within the environment.
