ImatgeThe seventh meeting of the Islands and Coastal Biosphere Reserves Network will take place on 12, 13 and 14 September on Jeju Island. This meeting will discuss the desirable action plan for the Network and the new Funds-In-Trust Project (Jeju, Korea, Menorca, Spain and UNESCO) will be formalized for the coming years.



The World Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserve was established based on the long-term program activities carried out under UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme,

and as a main follow-up action of the 2008 Madrid Action Plan. Accordingly, the network aims to emphasize and actualize the roles of biosphere reserves in islands and coastal zones for sustainable

development and to help resolve the issues on global climate changes. This international conference will be a good opportunity to discuss the themes with the world’s local governments and researchers. The Network is implemented by Jeju Special Self-Governing Province, Republic of Korea, the Island Council of Menorca, Kingdom of Spain, and is under the auspices of UNESCO.



Jeju Island was designated as Biosphere Reserve in 2002, World Natural Heritage in 2007, and Global Geopark in 2010. Various plant species of the sub-tropical, temperate, and polar regions, cohabit the area around Mt. Hallasan. Jeju is also rich in culture, myths, and legends. Indeed, Jeju is not only the only World Natural Heritage of Korea but also a treasure island for the world’s citizens.
