At the time of writing, there are important themes that go beyond the normal range of concerns expressed by archaeologists and cultural heritage managers. Most significantly are the growing awareness of the impact of climate change and the sustainability of the world’s oceans. The immediacy and importance of the threats is acknowledged in SDG 13 Climate Action and SDG 14 Life Below Water, which are two of the seventeen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN 2020a). This chapter introduces how climatic changes impacts underwater cultural heritage (UCH) and how the UCH community is responding and supporting the goals of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021–2030 (the Decade) that is providing a framework for supporting the aims of SDG 14 Life Below Water
