  • The Earth's ocean–land interface (the Margin) is critical for global sustainability.
  • The Margin is highly diverse in character and much remains to be discovered about this realm.
  • The 21st century will see unprecedented developmental pressure on the Margin.
  • The Margin is both vulnerable and resilient to anthropogenic impacts.
  • Expanded understanding of Margin systems, resources and processes is urgently needed to enable governance for Margin sustainability.
