Abstract

This chapter describes the philosophy characterizing the evolution of biosphere reserves since the 1995 International Conference on Biosphere Reserves in Seville, Spain and, more recently, the MAB Strategy (2015-25) and the Lima Action Plan (2016-25). It then explains the implementation and implications of the periodic review process introduced at the Seville conference. The chapter further describes how the WNBR connects to and supports international priorities and commitments related to the Sustainable Development Goals, biodiversity and climate change.
