Strategy and Roadmap

A new Roadmap for the Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme and its World Network of Biosphere Reserves

The Roadmap of the Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme is comprised of three documents:

The MAB Strategy 2015-2025 is an update of the Man and Biosphere (MAB) Programme in the new context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Lima Declaration (2016) on the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme and its World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR) was subscribed by UNESCO Member States, biosphere reserves, and co-operating public and private sector institutions, as well as civil society organizations. It expresses their political commitment with the Programme and lays out the principles of the Lima Action Plan.

The Lima Action Plan for UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme and its World Network of Biosphere Reserves (2016-2025) contains a comprehensive set of actions aimed at ensuring the effective implementation of the MAB Strategy 2015-2025.
