Members of the Biosphere Reserves Network have a unique opportunity to promote an area and strengthen its connection with its natural environment. By effecting change and enhancing sustainable development practices, biosphere reserves educate, build public awareness, develop sustainable tourism activities, ensure the sustainability of natural resources and mitigate the negative impact of climate and environmental change. Their model solutions have a global reach. Join the Network to create a better and more sustainable future for all communities.
