Service Description

Biosphere reserves are valuable cultural and natural landscapes. They are model regions in which an economic and sustainable form of land use is to be developed and implemented together with the people who live and work here. At the same time, this land use serves to protect and maintain a livable environment as well as certain habitats for plants and animals. In addition, biosphere reserves are intended to serve research and educational purposes.

In order to be able to meet all goals, they are divided into different zones - graded according to the influence of human activity.

Biosphere reserves are legally binding, uniformly protected and developed areas which:

  • are large-scale and characteristic of certain types of landscapes,
  • meet the requirements of a nature reserve in substantial parts of their territory, otherwise predominantly of a landscape conservation area,
  • primarily serve the preservation, development or restoration of a landscape characterised by traditional diverse use and the diversity of species and biotopes that has historically grown therein, including wild and former cultural forms of economically exploited or usable animal and plant species, and
  • serve as an example for the development and testing of economic practices that are particularly gentle on natural resources.

The goals of the biosphere reserve go far beyond the protection of nature. It is intended to open up opportunities for a new coexistence of people and nature as well as perspectives for sustainable development in the region.
