Jaragua biosphere now extended to include Haiti’s La Selle

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) added La Selle – Jaragua-Bahoruco-Enriquillo Transboundary Biosphere Reserve (Dominican Republic / Haiti) to its World Network of Biosphere. The addition was made during the International Coordinating Council of the Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme meeting in Paris from 12 to 15 June 2017.

The first Dominican biosphere reserve dates back to 2002, the Jaragua-Bahoruco-Enriquillo. That reserve is now extended to include La Selle in Haiti, designated in 2012.  As of June 2017, there are currently 20 transboundary biosphere reserves in 31 countries.

Transboundary reserves represent ecological corridors divided by a political and administrative frontier. Unesco acknowledged that bringing La Selle in Haiti and Jaragua-Bahoruco-Enriquillo together should allow better management of the environment on the island of Hispaniola.

Unesco describes the biosphere reserves as learning places for sustainable development whose aim is to reconcile biodiversity conservation and the sustainable use of natural resources. New sites are designated every year by the MAB Council that is composed of representatives of 34 elected UNESCO members.

Composed of 669 biosphere reserves in 120 countries, including 20 transboundary sites, the World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR) of the MAB Programme consists of a dynamic and interactive network of sites of excellence. It works to foster the harmonious integration of people and nature for sustainable development through participatory dialogue, knowledge sharing, poverty reduction, human well-being improvements, respect for cultural values and by improving society’s ability to cope with climate change.…phere-reserves
