The MAB-ICC will review progress made in the implementation of the Madrid Action Plan adopted at its 20th session (MAP; Madrid, February 2008) and discuss various matters concerning the future of MAB; important decisions, on new sites to UNESCO's World Network of Biosphere Reserves as well as on MAB Young Scientists Awards and the Michel Batisse Award for Biosphere Reserve Management will be made by the Council.


The Council is composed of thirty-four Member States of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, elected by the General Conference at its ordinary sessions, taking due account of equitable geographical distribution, of the need to ensure appropriate rotation, of the representativeness of these States from the ecological viewpoint in the various continents, 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 has one vote only.

Representatives of the Member States and Associate Members of UNESCO which are not members of the Council may nevertheless attend, as observers, meeting of the Council and its committees. Representatives of the United Nations, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the World Health Organization and the World Meteorological Organization may take part, without the right to vote, in all meetings of the Council, of its committees and of its 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, of its committees and of working groups.
