The prospects for the achievement of this goal hinge on successful conservation and sustainability of marine and coastal ecosystems while maintaining the economic, food security and livelihood benefits of marine resources. Oceans, seas and coastal systems provide invaluable support to the planet for food security, transport, energy, tourism and many of the most critical ecosystem services, including climate. However, climate change, overfishing, habitat change, invasive species introduction and pollution arising from poor management practices and market failures are threatening ocean health, with serious harmful and irreversible consequences.
