This paper contributes to the debate on the agency of the South in shaping global norms by focusing on the adoption of sustainable development as the consensus framework for the SDGs. Based on documentary and archival research, interviews with stakeholders, and direct participant observation of the SDG negotiations and consultations, the paper chronicles the ideas originating from the South in the emergence and subsequent evolution of the sustainable development concept and the adoption of the SDG.
For many years, WTM London has organised World Responsible Tourism Day, with the support of the United Nations World Tourism Organization. This is the world’s largest industry event focused on efforts to make the industry more responsible and sustainable. Each year leading figures from the industry, along with representatives of civil society and key organisations, gather to discuss the key issues facing the sustainable development of tourism. Many of these issues are directly reflected in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which was the focus of a key panel discussion at the 2016 event.

To conserve the bulk of Earth’s ecological heritage across the Anthropocene, setting aside half of Earth’s land is just a start. To conserve biodiversity over the long term across an increasingly human planet, conservation must become as integral to the human enterprise around the world as are social and economic development.
We highlight risks to local well-being where projects restrict access to biodiversity and ecosystem services in biodiversity offsets. We then present a framework laying out challenges and associated opportunities for delivering better biodiversity and local well-being outcomes.
We present ethical, practical, and regulatory reasons why development projects should consider this issue when implementing the mitigation hierarchy. We highlight the particular risks to local well-being associated with the most controversial part of the mitigation hierarchy (biodiversity offsetting). Finally, we present a framework that identifies challenges and possible opportunities for delivering better biodiversity and local well-being outcomes from application of the mitigation hierarchy.
This book chapter addresses goals 13, 14, and 15 by focusing on how changing environmental temperatures affect species adaptation.
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.
