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.

Hazardous waste generated from the disposal of Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) is driving research into a sustainable approach for treatment and recovery. The positive electrode active materials are the main targeted component, being the greatest contributor to LIBs cost. This paper studies the particle size characteristics of milled spent LIBs, and also the interaction of copper and aluminum impurities based on size, contributing to SDGs 7, 9 and 12.
This article addresses goals 7, 11, and 9 by presenting a stochastic electricity market model.
