Toward this goal, involvement of multi stakeholders is essential. This symposium will seek for a model case of sustainable development in Asia, reconfirming the significance and potential of UNESCO’s MAB Programme, and regarding the implementation of Lima Action Plan 2016-2025 adopted in March 2016 for the next 10 years.
Additionally, we will exchange ideas for the management toward the local sustainable development in harmony with nature, and the involvement of multi stakeholders especially focusing on local residents regarding the Japanese biosphere reserve’s case.
