Source to sea: Linkages in the 2030 agenda for sustainable development

Report Published: November 2016

Summary

The Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (SwAM) has, within the framework of its cooperation with the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida), financed a study undertaken by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) with the aim to understand the many linkages between freshwater and marine targets in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda). The report highlights the importance of understanding linkages between targets in the 2030 Agenda in order to secure healthy aquatic ecosystems along the source-to-sea continuum through analyzing links and gaps between the sustainable development goals (SDGs) on water (SDG 6) and oceans (SDG 14).
