Goal 14

Life Below Water

In line with the UAE Vision 2021, the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) works to achieve SDG 14 by implementing projects aimed at conserving the marine environment, reducing negative anthropogenic impacts, combating illegal and unregulated fishing, and addressing threats to the health of the oceans, such as acidification and marine pollution. The Ministry develops policies, establishes legislative and regulatory frameworks, and devises plans for the conservation of marine biodiversity and sustainable use of fisheries.
