Southeast Asian Biosphere Reserve Network

Initiated in 1998, this network comprises today Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

Moreover, Australia, Republic of Korea and some South Asian countries (India, Sri Lanka) are associated with SeaBRnet and often participate in SeaBRnet activities. The network's objective is to foster cooperation on various scientific, ecosystem and biosphere reserve management related issues, such as ecotones, mangroves, coastal areas, quality economies, and rehabilitation of degraded environments.

Thanks to funding provided by the Government of Japan since 2002, the interlinked MAB Ecotone and SeaBRnet initiatives are serviced by a Secretariat provided by the UNESCO-Jakarta Office.
