The United Nations aims to achieve sustainable management of water resources and ecosystems and protect aquatic life worldwide through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). One of these goals is "Life Below Water." This objective aims to take steps to preserve water resources, prevent pollution, and ensure the healthy functioning of aquatic ecosystems.

Sürdürülebilir Kalkınma Amaçları Sudaki Yaşam

The following items explain and summarize the main objectives and important points of the "Life Below Water" goal. Achieving these objectives is crucial for the preservation of water resources and a sustainable ecosystem.

  1. Preserving water quality: Aimed at preventing water pollution and preserving water quality.

  2. Water treatment and recycling: Aims to develop and promote water treatment and recycling systems.

  3. Water sustainability: Focuses on managing water resources sustainably and implementing effective water management in water-stressed regions.

  4. Fair distribution of water: Aims to distribute water fairly and equitably, ensuring access to water for all individuals.

  5. Conservation of ecosystems: Aims to preserve water ecosystems, wetlands, and water habitats, and protect biodiversity.

  6. Sustainability of fishing and marine resources: Aims to prevent overfishing and sustainably manage marine resources.

  7. Pollution prevention and reduction: Targets the prevention of water pollution, proper management of industrial and domestic waste, and the implementation of measures to reduce water pollution.

  8. Sustainable fishing: Aims to promote sustainable fishing practices and prevent overfishing.
