Urgent solutions for sustainable seafood production and protection of the marine environment

About this Event

In the face of the climate and biodiversity crises, the United Nations unanimously adopted the 2030 Agenda which commits to the sustainable management of natural resources for social and economic development. The 2030 Agenda includes a specific goal for conservation and sustainable use of oceans and marine resources: SDG 14 – ‘Life Below Water’.

Five years after the EU’s adoption of the 2030 Agenda, WWF will publish an analytical report for European and national decision makers on the EU’s progress to achieve the ten SDG14 targets. This event hosts an exchange of views between decision makers, key stakeholders and civil society to conclude on key areas of urgency and priority for the successful achievement of SDG14 targets by the upcoming deadlines of 2020, 2025 and 2030.

The event draws from WWF’s latest report to present a comprehensive and evidence-based assessment on the EU’s achievement of all SDG14 targets. Citing examples of best practices for each SDG14 target and WWF recommendations presented in the report, the discussion will focus on the successful bottom-up approach of Atlantic fishers to protect their livelihood, the socio-economic approach of ocean governance to deliver sustainable use of marine resources, and the significance of connections between SDG14 and the other SDGs to stress the importance of their achievement. With introductory presentations from marine policy experts, the event panel gives the voice to the sectors which have already developed and adopted solutions serving as guiding stars for full achievement of SDG14.
