The world’s oceans—their temperature, chemistry, currents and life—make the Earth habitable for humankind. How we manage this vital resource is essential for humanity as a whole. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to protect the planet, end poverty and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
