On Monday 24 August 2020 – at the beginning of World Water Week - RELX announced the winners of the 2020 RELX Environmental Challenge. Now in its 10th year, the RELX Environmental Challenge supports innovative solutions that improve sustainable access to safe water and sanitation where it is at risk, contributing to SDGs 1, 3, 6 and 10.

Tropical insects are astonishingly diverse and abundant yet receive only marginal scientific attention.
This study supports SDGs 3 and 6 by suggesting that current methods of cholera control are insufficient at achieving zero transmission of Vibrio cholerae in Haiti, and that large-scale cholera vaccination campaigns are needed alongside improvements in water and sanitation for long-term cholera elimination.
Each year the RELX Environmental Challenge is awarded to projects that best demonstrate how they can provide sustainable access to safe water or sanitation. In the past decade, the company has awarded $750,000 to projects and solutions that improve the world’s water quality and sanitation. This article, using innovative parallax storytelling technology, looks at the tangible impact of the RELX Environmental Challenge.
This book chapter advances SDG 3 and 6 by exploring the feasibility/design implications for coastal reservoirs based on estimation of runoff, detailed assessment of water demand and estimation of water quality.
This book chapter advances SDGs 6, 14 and 15 by examining how sustainable materials for environmental remediation are useful tools for helping address goals relating to ecosystem health and pollution control.
