This article devotes special attention to synthetic chemistry that is environmentally responsible, developing SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) whilst supporting environmental SDGs 12, 13, 14 and 15.
This viewpoint reflects on women's contribution to sustainable ocean governance, supporting SDG 5 (gender equality) and 14 (life below water). This article discusses the unique contributions women offer to ocean governance and the necessity to reduce systematically- embedded hurdles currently supporting gendered decision-taking in ocean governance.
Using a case study in Mozambique this article examines how other effective area-based conservation measures (OECMs) can contribute to achieving Goal 14 (Life below water), particularly target 5.
This article focuses on how the SDGs and Goal 14 can provide a framework for island ocean states (IOS), or ‘small island developing states’ (SIDS), which are characterized by limited land and oceanic remoteness, creating local and international dependencies for food, livelihoods, trade and transport.
Exploring SDG 17 (partnerships for the goals), this article conceptualises the intricate interconnections between SDG 14 (life below water) and the other Sustainable Development Goals based on the diverse benefits provided to humankind by marine ecosystems.
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.
