GLOBAL GOAL 14 TARGETS

14.1 – By 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution

14.2 – By 2020, sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts, including by strengthening their resilience, and take action for their restoration in order to achieve healthy and productive oceans

14.3 – Minimize and address the impacts of ocean acidification, including through enhanced scientific cooperation at all levels

14.4 – By 2020, effectively regulate harvesting and end overfishing, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and destructive fishing practices and implement science-based
management plans, in order to restore fish stocks in the shortest time possible, at least to levels that can produce maximum sustainable yield as determined by their biological
characteristics

14.5 – By 2020, conserve at least 10 percent of coastal and marine areas, consistent with national and international law and based on the best available scientific information

14.6 – By 2020, prohibit certain forms of fisheries subsidies which contribute to overcapacity and overfishing, eliminate subsidies that contribute to illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and refrain from introducing new such subsidies, recognizing that appropriate and effective
special and differential treatment for developing and least developed countries should be an integral part of the World Trade Organization fisheries subsidies negotiation

14.7 – By 2030, increase the economic benefits to Small Island developing States and least developed countries from the sustainable use of marine resources, including through
sustainable management of fisheries, aquaculture, and tourism

14.a – an Increase scientific knowledge, develop research capacity, and transfer marine technology, taking into account the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission Criteria and Guidelines on the Transfer of Marine Technology, in order to improve ocean health and to enhance the contribution of marine biodiversity to the development of developing countries, in particular, small island developing States and least developed countries

14.b – Provide access for small-scale artisanal fishers to marine resources and markets

HOW TO ACHIEVE THESE TARGETS
To efficiently tackle these challenges and achieve these targets it is important to have a concrete organizational framework. Showcasing the inter-linkages between various actors is necessary to best align instruments and institutes globally working on SDG6. Four sectors are delimiting the scope of action (Figure 1).

Governance Criteria:
– Institutional arrangements
– Participatory approaches
– Social science-policy dialogues

Economics Criteria:
– Funding mechanisms for SDG14
– Adoption of innovations
– Capacity building

Civil Society Criteria:
– The value of clean oceans
– Water protection trade-offs
– Societal engagement towards SDG14

Science and technology Criteria:
– Water knowledge gaps
– Technology enablers
– Research engagement in protecting oceans
