#SDG14 – Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources

“The world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents and life – drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind. Our rainwater, drinking water, weather, climate, coastlines, much of our food, and even the oxygen in the air we breathe, are all ultimately provided and regulated by the sea. Throughout history, oceans and seas have been vital conduits for trade and transportation.

Careful management of this essential global resource is a key feature of a sustainable future. However, at the current time, there is a continuous deterioration of coastal waters owing to pollution and ocean acidification is having an adversarial effect on the functioning of ecosystems and biodiversity. This is also negatively impacting small scale fisheries.

Marine protected areas need to be effectively managed and well-resourced and regulations need to be put in place to reduce overfishing, marine pollution and ocean acidification.”

Troubled Waters. Connections and Consequences | StJohnsRiverKeeper

All of Florida’s water is connected, and so are the forces that are overusing and polluting them. The only parts of the water picture in Florida that are not connected are the wishes of the citizens to the actions of the State’s leaders. In “Troubled Waters: Connections and Consequences,” we find out how the St. Johns River, its springs and its tributaries are a bellwether for the health and future of Florida’s economy and the consequences we will all face if we don’t change the way we treat our Troubled Waters.

Watch the video. What is happening to the St. Johns River is emblematic of the water quality and supply challenges we are facing throughout Florida, highlighting the significant pollution problems that exist and the impending water crisis that we face.

What do you think? What water supply issues do you have in your local community? How local authorities are managing water supplies?
