Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources

2012 Nick Hall
14 - Life below water

Rainwater, drinking water, weather, climate, coastlines, food, and oxygen are all ultimately provided and regulated by the sea. Increasing global temperatures, pollution and over exploitation are severely impacting the health, mechanics and future viability of water ecosystems. 

By supporting high quality carbon finance projects, businesses can deliver essential emission reductions and support low carbon sustainable development in areas most in need.

Example carbon finance project activities that aim to protect water ecosystems:

  • Establish agreements with community councils to improve local management of fisheries (Targets 14.2 and 14.4)
  • Reduce deforestation rates and minimise land-use change to avoid impacts on water systems (Target 14.2)
  • Improve the quality of water ecosystems by empowering communities to restore forested areas (Target 14.2)
  • Develop alternative food sources to prevent overexploitation of marine life (Target 14.4)

Projects that align with SDG 14: Marine conservation

A number of carbon finance projects support households and communities to develop sustainable economic livelihoods that can help them make the move out of poverty. 

Below are a sample of such projects. If you'd like to find out more about a particular project, follow the link.
