The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals includes a goal (SDG 14 – Life Below Water) to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.
SDG 14 Target 14.1 "by 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds (...)" provides a deadline for progress on reducing marine litter which is informed by SDG indicator 14.1.1b, “marine litter.”
The Global Partnership on Marine Litter and the GEO Blue Planet Initiative have produced a draft discussion paper on the development of a global platform for marine litter. Peer review of the paper is requested.
