The 26th session of the Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme International Co-ordinating Council (MAB-ICC), usually referred to as the MAB Council or ICC, will be held in Jönkoping, in the East Vättern Landscape Biosphere Reserve, Sweden, from 10 to 13 June 2014.
The Council is composed of 34 UNESCO Member States, elected by UNESCO's General Conference, respecting: equitable geographical distribution; appropriate rotation; the representativeness of these States from the ecological viewpoint on each continent; and of the importance of their scientific contribution to the international MAB programme.
Each Council Member State may send as many experts or advisers as it deems necessary to the Council session, but it only has one vote.
Representatives of the Member States and Associate Members of UNESCO which are not members of the Council may nevertheless attend, as observers, meetings of the Council and its committees. Representatives of the United Nations, UNESCO, the FAO, the WHO and the WMO may take part, without the right to vote, in all meetings of the Council, of its committees and working groups. Representatives of the International Council for Science, the International Social Science Council and the World Conservation Union may take part, without the right to vote, in all meetings of the Council and of its committees and working groups.
