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.

Further, we provide evidence that the gender stereotype effect persists even for women in single-gender groups.
