SDG14 - Life Below Water

At the United Nations Ocean Conference held in New York in June 2017, ISA announced seven voluntary commitments to advance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

These Voluntary Commitments are aimed in particular at contributing to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG14) to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.

The Voluntary Commitments pledged by ISA range from enhancing the role of women in marine scientific research, to promoting the Blue Economy concept as a means of enabling African nations and Pacific Small Island developing States (SIDS) to benefit fully from the sustainable development of deep-seabed resources and increased participation in marine scientific research projects.
