Since the adoption of the Seville Strategy in 1995, UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere Programme has clearly defined its mission: to combine, in exemplary territories (Biosphere Reserves), economic and social development, biodiversity conservation, environmental education and the promotion of scientific research, while encouraging the participation of inhabitants. It is therefore natural that Biosphere Reserves commit themselves in the Lima Action Plan (2016) to implementing the Sustainable Development Goals.
