It is a follow up to the TBR workshop on ‘Transboundary Biosphere Reserves: Towards More Effective Management of Shared Ecosystems and Sustainable Development of Bordering Territories’ held on 17 October 2013 in Frontenac Arch Biosphere, Canada, within the 2013 EuroMAB Network Meeting.

The wokshop in Belarus will gather key actors and experts involved in Biosphere Reserves (BRs) activities from the subregion - in particular, from the Russian Federation, Belarus and Ukraine. The aim is firstly to enable them to share information, experience, lessons learnt and best practices in biosphere reserves management and transboundary processes as discussed during EuroMAB 2013 and, in particular, during its TBR workshop and analyze their outcomes to be applied accordingly; and, secondly, to strengthen transboundary cooperation with a particular emphasis on bordering territories where transboundary water and associated ecosystems can be affected by unsustainable development due to different management approaches.
