WHAT DOES THIS BIOSPHERE DO FOR THE GARDEN ROUTE?
Biosphere Reserves represent a unique approach to land and biodiversity management. They aim to fulfil three interconnected functions:
Foster economic and human development which is socio-culturally and ecologically sustainable. Take a multi-stakeholder approach to solution development and foster dialogue for conflict resolution of sustainable natural resource utilization.
Support for demonstration projects, environmental education and training, research and monitoring related to local, regional, national and global issues of conservation and sustainable development. Provide sites of excellence for education, training and research.
