This paper looks at the importance of fiscal reforms and incentives in ensuring ‘no-one is left behind’ in the achievement of the SDGs, with a particular focus on Goal 14, Life below water.
The Scottish fishing industry depends upon a healthy flow of ecosystem services and the factors affecting ecosystem services for fishing are varied and challenging. Part of Scotland's pledge to the UN SDGs can be met by better fisheries management. This paper directly support knowledge on Goal 14, Life below water.
This framework illustrates how SDG 14 (life below water) targets can relate to all other SDG goals, contributing to SDG 17 (partnership for the goals). A framework is presented to increase understanding of relationships between Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to determine their interactions, aiding the effective and efficient prioritisation of policy options.
