The "Encyclopedia of the Sustainable Development Goals: Transforming the World We Want", is the largest editorial project on matters related to sustainable development ever undertaken. It is being produced by the World Sustainable Development Research and Transfer Centre, the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme and the European School of Sustainability Science and Research at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences in Germany, and is being published by Springer, as part of the award-winning "World Sustainability Series"

The Encyclopedia encompasses 17 volumes, each one devoted to one of the 17 SDGs. We plan 100 articles per volume, or 1.700 entries in total. We are pleased to announce that the first volume has been published, and will be launched at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2019, to be held on 16th-20th October 2019. The Frankfurt Book Fair is the largest of its kind in the world.
