Local actions for the new Global Biodiversity Framework

How do we develop co-existence with nature through the UNESCO Biosphere Reserves?


The global biodiversity crisis must be solved locally.  Many good initiatives are already being taken today, but we must do more.  The Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) sets out an ambitious pathway to reach the global vision of a world living in harmony with nature by 2050.  Through the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere program (MAB), work has been done for decades for a better balance between man and nature. It is imperative that we learn from these global experiences and promote for further local community-based initiatives and actions in creating even better conditions for the development of nature and society. This publication presents findings from the Nordic Council of Ministers - Nordic Working Group for Biological Diversity funded project MAB LAB: Man, and the Biosphere - Local Actions for the new global framework for Biodiversity.
