Without the oceans, life on our planet would be impossible. They are a key element of the global ecosystem and cover around 71 per cent of the Earth’s surface. The sustainable use and conservation of marine resources are among the core concerns of development cooperation. Fishery yields must be distributed fairly, as around twelve per cent of the world’s population depend on them for their livelihoods. Plastic waste and increasing nutrient discharge from agriculture cause huge problems. Multi-stakeholder partnerships can develop different solutions to address these concerns.

A very concrete example of how MAPs contribute to the achievement of SDG 14 is the Fishery Improvement Project presented in this factsheet. The partnership was launched by WWF to address overfishing of tuna in the Philippines.
