    • Biosphere Reserves
      The thematic group on Biosphere Reserves is one of the newest groups of the CEM. It aims to better connect the work of the Commission regarding issues such as ecosystem-based assessment, ecosystem governance, and resilience to activities within biosphere reserves, and to enhance collaborations between UNESCO and IUCN. Biosphere Reserves are excellent locations to examine how to implement the SDGs, Aichi Targets and other agreements on the ground.
