Sixth Southeast Asia Biosphere Reserve Network (SeaBRnet) Meeting

With the kind support of the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), on 22-26 February 2011 UNESCO organized the 6th SeaBRnet meeting in Cibodas Biosphere Reserve in West Java, Indonesia. This regional workshop gathered members of SeaBRnet together to share knowledge on Biosphere Reserves from the Southeast Asian region to assess whether Biosphere Reserves are serving their functions, particularly that of mitigating the effects of climate change and to assess current SeaBRnet monitoring systems and explore possibilities of either applying the best model to all SeaBRnet members or using a participatory approach to conceive a new system for biodiversity, socio-economic and physical environment monitoring for this region.
