SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 14
Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
Advancing the sustainable use and conservation of the oceans continues to require effective strategies and management to combat the adverse effects of overfishing, growing ocean acidification and worsening coastal eutrophication. The expansion of protected areas for marine biodiversity, intensification of research capacity and increases in ocean science funding remain critically important to preserve marine resources.
CSCF engaged in dissemination activities to impart our findings among the public as well as formal educational institutions; especially students of schools and colleges through exhibitions, seminars and workshops. This is intended to raise awareness about Our Ocean Health and sustainable use of marine resources. We also educate the public and mainstream society through media and other public platforms about the destructive fishing practices, ocean pollution and developmental activities detrimental to ocean ecosystem and environmental hazards. Indigenous fishermen community has the tremendous knowledge and practices to conserve the sea. We brought up these ocean friendly practices to the wide platform.
