Beslutet från Unesco fattas under MAB-ICC
jun 17 – jun 21 heldag

31th session of the Man and the Biosphere Programme International Co-ordinating Council (MAB-ICC)

When, local time:
Monday, 17 June 2019 – 9:00am to Friday, 21 June 2019 – 6:00pm
Where: France, Paris

The 31th session of the Man and the Biosphere Programme International Co-ordinating Council (MAB-ICC) will be held in Paris, at UNESCO Headquarters from 17 to 21 June 2019.

On this occasion, the MAB-ICC will decide upon the inclusion of new biosphere reserves into the World Network of Biosphere Reserves and take note of recommendations on periodic review reports of biosphere reserves.

Among other responsibilities, the role of the MAB-ICC is:
– to guide and supervise the MAB Programme; to review the progress made in the implementation of the Programme (cf. Secretariat report and reports of MAB National Committees);
– to recommend research projects to countries and to make proposals on the organization of regional or international cooperation;
– to assess priorities among projects and MAB activities in general.
The Council is composed of 34 UNESCO Member States, elected by UNESCO’s General Conference, respecting equitable geographical distribution; appropriate rotation; the representativeness of these States from the ecological viewpoint on each continent; and of the importance of their scientific contribution to the international MAB Programme.
Each Council Member State may send as many experts or advisers as it deems necessary to the Council session, but it only has one vote.
Representatives of the Member States and Associate Members of UNESCO which are not members of the Council may nevertheless attend, as observers, meetings of the Council and its committees. Representatives of the United Nations, UNESCO, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) may take part, without the right to vote, in all meetings of the Council, of its committees and working groups. Representatives of the International Council for Science, the International Social Science Council and the World Conservation Union may take part, without the right to vote, in all meetings of the Council and of its committees and working groups.

Nationalälvens dag & potentiell invigning av biosfärområdet @ Hotell Forsen
aug 17 heldag

Den 17 augusti firas landets Nationalälvar! Om vi får ett positivt besked från Unesco i Paris i juni kommer vi att fira invigningen av Biosfärområde Vindelälven-Juhtatdahka samma dag. Save the date helt enkelt. Vi vill fylla Kvarnområdet vid de vackra Vindelforsarna med hela geografin som Vindelälven-Juhtatdahka biosfärkandidaturen består av. Är det någon av er som vill visa upp sin verksamhet eller förening på plats den 17 augusti? Det får gärna rymmas inom något av våra fokusområden och/eller de Globala målen, men det är inte nödvändigt. Läs om våra fokusområden på följande länk: (https://vindelalvenjuhtatdahka.se/fokusomraden/). Hör av dig till cecilia@vindelalven.se med din idé!

Wetlands

Wetlands are land areas that are saturated or flooded with water either permanently or seasonally. Inland wetlands include marshes, ponds, lakes, fens, rivers, floodplains, and swamps. Coastal wetlands include saltwater marshes, estuaries, mangroves, lagoons and even coral reefs. Fish ponds, rice paddies, and salt
pans are human-made wetlands.

World Wetlands Day

2 February each year is World Wetlands Day to raise global awareness about the vital role of wetlands for people and our planet. This day also marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971, in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea.
