GOAL 14 TARGETS

Minimize and address the impacts of ocean acidification, including through enhanced scientific cooperation at all levels

GOAL 14 TARGETS

By 2020, sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts, including by strengthening their resilience, and take action for their restoration in order to achieve healthy and productive oceans

GOAL 14 TARGETS
