In no other realm is the importance of biodiversity for sustainable development more essential than in the ocean. Marine biodiversity, the variety of life in the ocean and seas, is a critical aspect of all three pillars of sustainable development—economic, social and environmental— supporting the healthy functioning of the planet and providing services that underpin the health, wellbeing and prosperity of humanity.
