Goal Fourteen calls for conserving and sustainably using oceans, seas and marine resources. Careful management of these resources is a key feature of a sustainable future. Oceans and seas are crucial component of the planet’s ecosystem. Marine resources are important for global nutrition and to the livelihoods of people living in coastal areas. Currently, data needed to track progress in meeting targets are sparse for this Goal. Highlights of the baseline status of the region use limited data on threats from overuse and pollution and governments’ efforts to protect marine areas and monitor ‘integrated local threats’ to coral reefs.
