Namami Tate is an initiative of the Ministry of Earth Sciences under Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. This initiative intends to raise awareness regarding the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG-14 Life below water) in citizen and business communities.
The world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents, and life – drive global systems that make the Earth habitable for humankind. Over 3 billion people depend on marine and coastal biodiversity for their livelihoods. However, today we are seeing 30 percent of the world’s fish stocks overexploited, reaching below the level at which they can produce sustainable yields.
Oceans also absorb about 30 percent of the carbon dioxide produced by humans, and we are seeing a 26% rise in ocean acidification since the beginning of the industrial revolution. Marine pollution, which occurs with an overwhelming majority from land-based sources, is reaching alarming levels, with an average of 13,000 pieces of plastic litter to be found on every square km of the ocean. Keeping these facts in mind, it is important that we know our ocean ecosystems and their current conditions well.
