Impact Rankings 2020: life on land

The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We use carefully calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons across three broad areas: research, outreach and stewardship.

This table on SDG 15 – life on land measures universities’ research on life on land and their education on and support for land ecosystems.

The list includes 268 universities from 55 countries.
