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).
This paper discusses the challenges in safely re-opening indoor sport centres and the measures already suggested by others to partly tackle these challenges. It also elaborates three potential additional measures and based on these additional measures, it suggests the concept of a certificate of equivalence that could allow indoor sports centers with such a certificate to re-open safely and more rapidly. It also attempts to stimulate increased preparedness of indoor sports centers that should allow them to remain open safely during potential next waves of SARS-CoV-2 as well as future pandemics. This contributes to SDGs 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 16.

When a subordinate is subjected to abusive supervision such as public ridicule, yelling, scapegoating, or other forms of supervisor mistreatment, a natural response for the subordinate is to directly retaliate against the abusive supervisor. Although retaliation is dysfunctional and should be discouraged, the researchers examine the potential functional role retaliation plays in terms of alleviating the negative consequences of abusive supervision on subordinate justice perceptions. This article contributes to SDGs 3 and 16.

This relates to SDGs 3, 16 and 17.

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.
