SDG 14 Life Below Water
The SDG 14 is a universal and urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development by 2030. The goal, being adopted in 2015 is a follow-up of the partially achieved millennium goals.
Among others, this goal includes the prevention and significant reduction of marine pollution of all kinds, the sustainable management and protection of marine and coastal ecosystems, the effective regulation of harvesting and end of overfishing, and the conservation of at least 10 per cent of coastal and marine areas. The creativity, know-how, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve the SDG 14 in every context.
