Lake Tana accepted as UNESCO biosphere reserve

June 19, 2015 1:08 pm Published by

During a recent ICC-Conference of the UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB), Lake Tana was successfully included into the world network of biosphere reserves. This is the great outcome of the NABU project “For People and Nature: Establishment of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve at Lake Tana in Ethiopa”, which has been running since 2012. We are extremely excited about these news and are now looking forward to the biosphere reserve becoming a model region of sustainable development.
