Data for analysis of the linkages between Sustainable Development Goals, Targets and Indicators and 8 categories of representative key risks (RKR) related to climatic risks. The data set comprises a listing of documents of specific risk categories for keyword extraction and text used for analysis on linkages to the Sustainable Development Goals (Table 1). Climatic risk categories identified as risk to coastal socio-ecological systems (RKR-A), risk to terrestrial and ocean ecosystems (RKR-B), risks associated with critical physical infrastructure, networks and services (RKR-C), risk to living standards (RKR-D), risk to human health (RKR-E), risk to food security (RKR-F), risk to water security (RKR-G), and risks to peace and to human mobility (RKR-H). The list of documents for each category of RKR (Table 2) were compiled by expert teams (Table 3). The 3 files in this repository: 1. 'Table 1 SDG Keyword list.docx' contains the list of keywords used for each of the SDG indicators. 2. 'Table 2 List of Documents and Text Strings.xlsx' contains the list of document 'DOI / URL', 'Reference' titles, and the text string used for analysis comprising 'Abstracts', 'Highlight/Significance etc' (from the article), 'Keywords', and 'Notes' if any entered by experts for the categories RKR-A, RKR-B, RKR-C, RKR-D, RKR-E, RKR-F, RKR-G, RKR-H. The list of experts are included in tab 'RKR Experts' 3. 'Table 3 RKR Experts.xlsx' lists the experts contributing to the compilation of literature.
