This special issue contributes to ongoing discussions of SDG 14 with a special focus on its relationship with other SDGs and broader international policy and legal instruments towards a more holistic and effective interpretation and implementation of this ocean-focused Goal. The emphasis in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development on the role of oceans and coasts for sustainable development, including with respect to poverty reduction, food security, nutrition, well-being and traditional livelihoods, thus offers an ideal opportunity to push the boundaries of scientific, policy and legal reflection forward towards an integrated implementation of the SDGs and the achievement of the three pillars of sustainable development.
