"The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) collectively lay down a challenge to researchers, practitioners and policy makers: akin to the concept of the indivisibility of human rights from one another, the SDGs also recognise the interconnectedness of sectors for development, referring to “human rights” in a number of Goals. While long overdue, this interconnectedness presents perhaps the biggest development challenge of all: how to programme and govern such interrelations and complexity in order to promote and safeguard the wellbeing of humans and the planet. Drawing insights from the fields of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and population dynamics that have been particularly associated with SGDs 3 (health) and 5 (gender), this commentary critiques current debates in research, practice and policy spheres to discuss how the rights-based approaches of SRHR could transform human and planetary health across the SGDs. Our paper showcases innovative responses to the inter-sector challenge and considers future actions and directions in the context of climate change and the One Health concept. It also considers whether the way in which the SDGs are being interpreted and implemented holds back cross-sectoral implementation which prevents or delays practitioners, policy makers and academics from turning the often-promoted mantra of “integration” into sustainable actions.
