Marine Ecosystem Services and the Sustainable Development Goals
How do marine ecosystem services support the Sustainable Development Goals?
Building on the "Ocean and Us" publication, the Ecosystem Services related Blue Solutions and GEF Blue Forests work, the Architect will provide a resource for countries in their plans for achieving SDGs, harnessing the support from healthy marine and coastal ecosystems.
This project will respond to priorities identified with the Norwegian MoEC and MoFA. The architect is suggested to provide focused advised on selected SDGs and Targets that have the greatest relevance from a marine and coastal ecosystem services perspective (i.e. hunger, nutrition, employment, sustainable growth and climate related targets). It will provide tools and approaches for integrating ecosystem services into development strategies and policies, and real life examples of how this has been successfully conducted.
The architect will give countries access to experience and expertise, through our network of partners, the Marine Ecosystem Services Partnership in particular.
