The objective of the meeting is to assess the progress, accomplishment and key challenges of the Madrid Action Plan (MAP) for Pacific biosphere reserves, as well as to identify post-MAP follow-up actions. During the meeting, participants will also work to identify new ways to engage with current biosphere reserves, while working to increase the number of reserves in the Pacific.
