     A Sustainable Development Goal for the Ocean and Coasts1) Ensure the basic life-sustaining and regulating functions of the oceans (oxygen production, key processes in the climate system and in the hydrological cycle).2) Ensure a healthy and productive marine environment to sustain all provisioning and non-provisioning (i.e. supporting and regulating) services of oceans and coasts. 3) Use mitigation and adaptation strategies, innovation, and sustainable development to build resilient coastal communities by sharing benefits and responsibilities.4) Engage in integrated, multi-level, transparent, and effective ocean governance.

Proposal :  A Sustainable Development Goal for the Ocean and Coasts

Summary :  Secure blue wealth by ensuring a healthy and productive marine environment with all basic provisioning, support, regulation, and cultural services. Provide equitable access to ocean resources, and ensure that neither pollution nor the harvesting and extraction of animate and inanimate resources impair the basic functions of the ecosystem. Facilitate the development of sustainable and resilient coastal communities. Harmonize national and regional maritime policies, and encourage cooperation in coastal and global marine spatial planning

Goal : 1) Ensure the basic life-sustaining and regulating functions of the oceans (oxygen production, key processes in the climate system and in the hydrological cycle).
2) Ensure a healthy and productive marine environment to sustain all provisioning and non-provisioning (i.e. supporting and regulating) services of oceans and coasts.
3) Use mitigation and adaptation strategies, innovation, and sustainable development to build resilient coastal communities by sharing benefits and responsibilities.
4) Engage in integrated, multi-level, transparent, and effective ocean governance.

Targets and Indicators:  Targets: - establish adequate ocean governance by 2020
- establish marine protected areas covering 20% of the oceans by 2025
 
Indicators:
- ocean health (water quality, biodiversity, productivity, …)
- ocean services (transport, energy, food, materials, culture, tourism, …)
- coastal resilience (coastal protection, infrastructurel, marine protected areas, …)
