In this policy brief, the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Programme and the World Network of Mountain Biosphere Reserves present their recommendations for harnessing the socio-ecological potential of mountain biosphere reserves for biodiversity conservation.

From the paradigm-shifting landscape approach to the potential for scientific collaboration between more than half of biosphere reserves worldwide, mountain biosphere reserves are playing an instrumental role for biodiversity with regard to national conservation targets and the global objective of 30% protected landmass by 2030. This policy brief was produced in collaboration with the Mountain Partnership and the Mountain Research Initiative, in line with the International Year of Sustainable Mountain Development.
