Impact Rankings 2020: zero hunger

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 2 – zero hunger measures universities’ research on hunger, their teaching on food sustainability and their commitment to tackle food waste and address hunger among students and local communities.

The list includes 290 universities from 62 countries.
