Biosphere Reserves / Regions. Author: Debby Thomson- Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Region (Article Type: Explanation) A Biosphere reserve is an area that has been designated by the UNESCO (United National Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) to demonstrate innovative approaches to living and working in harmony with nature.The management of biosphere reserves aims to show that environmental conservation can be used to promote sustainable development based on scientific research findings together with a partnership with the local people.

This is realized through a specific land-use system, which takes into account the topographic, biological, economic and socio.Sustainable development projects in the biosphere reserve aim especially at the development of sustainable nature-oriented tourism (e.g.
