UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere Urban Group: contributing to sustainable urban development

Urban Systems

    Unsustainable city development continues at an alarming rate worldwide. The MAB Urban Group, launched in 2000, investigates biosphere reserves' contributions to sustainable urban development, and helps to develop the agenda for urban ecosystem research and policy-making within UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere Programme. This web section notably allows members of the Urban Group to share information.
