This special issue of World Development is part of the SDG Perspectives Series, a collaborative, interdisciplinary endeavour whose aim is to interrogate the gap between academic and policy discourses underpinning the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. The articles offer rich overviews on key goals, and provide examples, research evidence, and empirical data that illustrate important challenges and new lines of enquiry. By narrowing down the discussion on specific aspects of the SDGs that deserve particular attention, the special issue offers a nuanced perspective on the potential and limitations of the 2030 Agenda.
This journal article addresses goals 9, 14, and 15 by assessing country-level overlaps between planned infrastructure expansion, infrastructure-threatened biodiversity, and national biodiversity compensation policies.

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.
