This is the third meeting of the Global Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves which was created at the 21st Session of the International Coordinating Council of the Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB-ICC) in 2009 that was held in Jeju (Republic of Korea).
The Global Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves aims to realize the potential of biosphere reserves in addressing climate change, particularly as places for learning about sustainable development and also for experimenting on mitigation and adaptation measures on climate change. The first meeting of the Global Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves was held in Menorca, Spain, from 13 to 15 February 2012 and the second meeting was held on Jeju Island, Republic of Korea from 12 to 13 September 2012. This is the third meeting of the Network.
