Biosphere

BIOSPHERE IN A NUTSHELL

Biosphere is the living surface of our planet, made from the land, the sea, the air we breathe and energy from the Sun. People across the world have learned about the wonderful benefi ts from their biosphere and how to use them sustainably. UNESCO Biosphere Reserves are some of the best examples where communities have found ways to resolve the conservation of ecosystems with their ongoing sustainable use. There are over 686 Biosphere Reserves in 120 countries including 20 transboundary sites.
