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 book chapter addresses goals 9, 12 and 15 by looking at how green nanotechnology can facilitate sustainable methods leading to reduced environmental impacts, improved conservation, and the protection of resources and human health.

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.

Directly contributing to SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 15 (life on land), this research identifies microplastic's multiple negative impacts on terrestrial ecosystem services.
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.
This book chapter addresses goals 12, 7, 11 and 15 by looking at the environmental and economic impact of the utilization of biomass resources.

Contributing to goals 9, 11, 12 and 15, this article calls for an understanding of ecosystem services to be integrated into built environment materials selection.

This research supports SDGs 2 (zero hunger), 15 (life on land) and 17 (partnerships for the goals). Ecological intensification aims to use ecosystem services (e.g. pollination and pest management) to sustain agricultural production while minimising environmental impact. Kleijn et al. discuss the benefits of ecological intensification and ways that scientists can better communicate these to farmers.

Advancing SDG 9.5 (enhance scientific research), this review explores experimental techniques for the assessment of micro- and nanoplastics in the environment. Enhanced research into these environmental pollutants may further support SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).
This article expresses the need for standardized analytical methods and techniques in microplastic research, supporting SDGs 9.5 (enhance scientific research), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life under water) and 15 (life on land).
