As with the other SDGs, countries are encouraged to use the most relevant indicators for their individual national contexts. For example, not all the LMCs have coastline: Lao PDR is landlocked. The Laos government has shifted the focus away from marine resources to freshwater ecosystems and inland capture fisheries, keeping targets such as 14.2, 14.4, and 14.7 relevant to the country. Other countries, like Cambodia, have not yet completed the process of nationalizing the SDG 14 indicators.
