Figure 5.17 | Global distribution of fish catches (average 2010–2014, based on (Pauly and Zeller, 2016)), coastal habitats including seagrasses (UNEP-WCMC and FT, 2017) salt marshes (Mcowen et al. 2017), mangrove forests (Spalding, 2010), coral reefs (UNEP-WCMC and WRI, 2010) and an index (called Marine Focus Factor) for the inclusion of the ocean in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) published by each country (Gallo et al. 2017). The higher the Marine Focus Factor, the more frequent use of ocean in the country’s NDCs.
