Kick-off meeting of the BRESEP Project, Chiloe National Park, Chile.

UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme coordinates the project ‘Biosphere Reserves as a Tool for Coastal and Island Management in the South-East Pacific Region (BRESEP)’ with the support of the Flemish Government of Belgium.

The objective of the project is to create and reinforce existing biosphere reserves on the coastal areas and islands of the west coast of Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Peru. The project also aims to promote biosphere reserves as tools for innovative projects to bring added value to local socio-economical activities, and to sensitize and build the capacity of stakeholders in the area.

This three-year project wasofficially launched in December 2014 in the city of Castro on Chiloe Island in Chile.
