The importance of the Seas and Oceans to humankind as a source of life, oxygen producer, ecosystem support, climate regulator, food producer, source of employment and as a water reserve has been recognized globally.  Emphasis is on the United Nations Organization, through Agenda 2030, which defines the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG14 on the “conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.”

In addition, raising the level of understanding of other relevant international legal frameworks, such as the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), will provide a basis for structured cooperation between nations on the maritime side, leading to the proclamation of the Seas and Oceans as factors of sustained development and security of the countries.  On the other hand, it will allow for the promotion of permanent collaboration, based on an inter-sectoral and interagency approach, for effective and integrated management of the coastal and maritime areas in the least developed countries.
