The title „Biosphere reserve“, which the Rhön has, as 531 other regions in 105 countries have, is a award of the UNESCO.The biosphere reserve concept tackles one of the most important questions which faces the world today:
How can we harmonise the conservation of biological diversity with economic and social development and the conservation of cultural goods?
Biosphere reserves are areas which extend over terrestrial, marine and coastal ecosystems or a combination of it and which are internationally recognised by the UNESCO-Man and Biosphere (MAB) programme.
