Impact Rankings 2021: 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 comparison across four broad areas: research, stewardship, outreach and teaching.

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 402 institutions from 69 countries/regions.
