04-07-2003 9:00 am Paris - UNESCO’s World Network of Biosphere Reserves - pilot areas where the need to conserve biodiversity is reconciled with the sometimes conflicting needs of development - will get a boost next week, with the addition of new sites.
The Bureau of the International Coordinating Council of UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (MAB) programme, meeting in Paris from July 8 to 11, will consider new nominations for incorporation into the World Network of Biosphere Reserves. Some 25 nominations will be discussed, submitted by 13 Member States. Those approved will be added to the 425 existing sites in 95 countries. The new sites will be announced on July 10.

And, to be announced by the Bureau on July 9 will be the winner of the 2003 Sultan Qaboos Prize, as well as the MAB Young Scientist Award winners for 2004.

The US $20,000 Sultan Qaboos Prize, rewards outstanding contributions to the management or preservation of the environment. It is awarded every two years. The previous (2001) prize was awarded to the Chad Association of Volunteers for the Protection of the Environment.

The MAB Young Scientists Awards encourage young scientists to conduct interdisciplinary research on ecosystems, natural resources and biodiversity, in line with the MAB Programme's focus on sustainable interactions between people and biosphere. Ten to 15 awards are made each year up to a maximum value of $5000 each.
