Dialog for better management
“Dialogue plays a central role in the effort to reconcile conservation and development, in the understanding, management and prevention of conflicts and in the elaboration of rules for the use of and access to resources in biosphere reserves”
N. Ishwaran, 2008
In each Biosphere reserve, local, regional and other authorities, natural area managers, economic and community stakeholders, as well as local inhabitants, all coexist, each with their own vision of development and nature. The MAB France committee encourages dialogue between these stakeholders, with a view to promoting concerted development and a step towards environmental awareness in these territories.
