Healthy oceans support a range of sustainable development goals

The ocean, together with the ecosystems, habitats and species therein, provides benefits to humans in numerous and diverse ways, and this is reflected in many aspects of humanity’s religions and traditions, stretching back to the dawn of civilization. This understanding is also captured in the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted in 2015, which aim to reconcile the needs of people, the planet, prosperity, peace and partnerships. The SDGs focus more on the environment than the preceding set of Millennium Development Goals,. While the importance of a healthy ocean is recognized through a dedicated goal (Goal 14), the role it plays in sustainable development goes far beyond this goal alone.
