Food security is threatened in many parts of the world, and food from the oceans and inland waters is a crucial component in ensuring food security for the future.  This relies on a broad multi- sectoral approach including science, policy, industry and businesses through an overarching common goal across disciplines to achieve sufficient nutritious food for everyone, linked to existing initiatives. Actions for this element may for example range from efforts to bridge the knowledge gap, form regional networks, or other initiatives carried out by different stakeholders to realize the potential of aquatic foods in food security and nutrition. Relevant SDGs related to this element are SDG 2, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17. Relevant recommendations from the Committee on World Food Security are CFS 4A.1, 4A.6, 4B.4, 4F.
