WUR is authoritative in climate research, according to a study published by Elsevier on 23 September.

The United Nations announced the sustainable development goals (SDG’s) five years ago. Since then, 4.1 million scientific articles were published throughout the world on issues pertaining to these SDGs, Elsevier calculated. The majority of the publications are on the subject of improving public health worldwide, closely followed by articles on affordable, sustainable energy and climate action (i.e., climate change).

According to the Elsevier report, the Dutch SDG research is authoritative, as it is frequently cited. Dutch research on development goals 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production) and 13 (Climate Action) are cited particularly frequently. In the field of climate action, WUR is influential: Wageningen publications are cited 220 per cent more often than the global average in this field.
