Sustainable Development Goal 14: Life Below Water

What is SDG 14?

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14 is dedicated to conserving and sustainably using the oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development. The United Nations aims to prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution, protect marine ecosystems, and regulate overfishing.

The United Nations’ Objective

The United Nations envisions a world where oceans and marine life are protected, and their resources are used sustainably to support both present and future generations. SDG 14 addresses the need for immediate and concerted actions to preserve marine biodiversity, reduce pollution, and promote sustainable practices for the well-being of our oceans.
