9th meeting of South and Central Asia Man and Biosphere Network

UNESCO’s Man and Biosphere developed a scientific network of local sites that are experimenting with sustainable development at the level of a landscape. There are now almost 700 biosphere reserves in the world. In South and Central Asia, there are 44. The Royal Botanical Park has been identified as a proposed site for Bhutan’s first biosphere reserve. The 9th meeting of the South and Central Asia Man and Biosphere Network is taking place in Thimphu.
