Detailed Description

The SDG Resource Centre showcases the latest in science, law, business, events and more that can help drive forward the SDGs, drawing on content from across the whole of our company and from key partners as well. The aim is to support the UN in implementing the SDGs and to broaden awareness and understanding of the SDGS for our customers, governments, researchers, companies, NGOs and individuals.

Content on the SDG Resource Centre and how to access it

The content on the SDG Resource Centre includes articles, reports, legal practical guidance, tools, webinars and videos and events, categorised by SDG and tagged with relevant topics and region. You can explore by SDG or content type (articles, reports etc) and search all of the content using the search form. You can also follow a topic by using the tags that will appear as you click through the site.

SDG News Tracker

The SDG News Tracker shows up to the minute news – and over the last 30 days – about the SDGs from around the world.  Find it on the homepage.  The size of bars indicates each SDG’s ‘share of voice’ for a given week.  It searches over millions of articles published daily across 77,000 news sources, in the six UN languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Spanish and Russian) as well as  German.  You can also search for SDG news by geography (region, country and state/province) using our mapping function: access the Global Map on each SDG main page.  The SDG news tracker is built and maintained using LexisNexis Newsdesk®.

Communicate on the SDGs with the world on Mendeley

The SDG Resource Centre aims to foster rich discussion about SDG solutions through Mendeley. There is a discussion group for each SDG and all are welcome to join.  Engage with those working in your field, make new connections, stay up to date with cutting edge research, share your insights, and help find the answers to the challenges which SDGs address.

Mendeley is a tool for reference management and an online platform with social networking features which supports dialogue and understanding. It is a free service and open to everyone.  To join Mendeley groups, sign up at and create a Mendeley profile. Once you are logged in, you can access the groups you are interested in by clicking on the ‘Join the discussion’ button on the left-hand side of each SDG page. We’ve created five SDG discussion groups; one for each of the SDG key themes: Peace (SDGs 1, 2, 10 and 16); People (SDGs 3, 4 and 5); Prosperity (SDGs 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12); Planet (SDGs 13, 14 and 15); and Partnership (SDG 17).

?”Our vision is to use our unique contributions to society to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 17 goals for people and the planet to be realised over the next decade and beyond. A tangible example is the SDG Resource Centre, with content curated from across RELX Group and key partners, for the benefit of all.”  Erik Engstrom, CEO, RELX Group
