The importance of Life Below Water

More than three billion people depend on marine and coastal resources for employment opportunities, food security and sustainable livelihoods. The well-being of the oceans is also indispensable in fighting climate change and preserving marine biodiversity.

Sida's support to achieve the Global Goal for Life Below Water is focused on coastal zone development, sustainable fisheries, marine and coastal ecosystems and support to target marine pollution.
