Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

Open Access (OA) and the advent of access programs such as Research4Life have rapidly transformed the publishing landscape. In some ways, they have made strides in bridging the knowledge gap between high- and low-income countries. In other ways, they may present obstacles, so it’s important to ensure that a move towards open access doesn’t disadvantage low-income countries.This article contributes to SDGs 10 and 17.
This paper summarizes key learnings on effective intervention design, and discusses relevant policy and programmatic implications (as organized according to the Nuffield ladder). The paper concludes with a call for greater urgency in addressing influencers of children’s diets and the need for a cross-sectoral approach to policy design.

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.
