Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG 14) is one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations in 2015. The official wording of SDG 14 is: “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.” SDG 14 is essential for sustainable development. The oceans cover more than 70% of the Earth's surface, and they play a vital role in regulating the climate, providing food and jobs, and supporting biodiversity. Achieving SDG 14 means protecting the oceans for future generations, and making sure that they continue to provide the benefits the world needs.
