Management plan of the Lower Morava BR for the period 2021 - 2025

The UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves (WNBR) began in the 1970s as part of the Man and Biosphere (MaB) programme. The programme aims to ensure the sustainable development and protection of selected valuable sites around the world. The principles for the management of Biosphere Reserves (BRs) are formulated in the Seville Strategy (1995). The Madrid Action Plan (2008) and the Lima Action Plan (2016) provided new impetus for the creative development of the ideas of the Seville Strategy.

At its meeting in 2003, the Committee of the International Coordinating Council of the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Programme approved the extension of the Pálava Biosphere Reserve to include the Lednice-Valtice area and Podluží, with floodplain forests in the area between Breclav, Mikulčice and the confluence of the Morava and Dyje rivers. The newly defined area was named the Lower Morava Biosphere Reserve. In 2004, the public benefit corporation Biosphere Reserve Dolní Morava, o.p.s. (PBC) was established as a legal and organisational basis for the involvement and participation of local authorities, state administration bodies, non-governmental associations and private interest holders in the BR.

In accordance with the principles of the Statutory Framework for the BR, the Seville Strategy, the currently valid Lima Action Plan, the Memorandum of Association and the Statutes of the public benefit company, the LM BR has prepared a Management Plan for its activities for the years 2021 - 2025. On the basis of this Management Plan, annual activity plans are prepared.
PBC will focus its activities mainly on the following areas in the BR area of interest:

1) Protection of natural and cultural diversity
2) Creating models of good landscape management and finding methods for sustainable development of society and sustainable use of natural resources
3) Research and education
4) Partnership cooperation

The above activities will be implemented with the funds that the PBC receives from its own professional activities, from grants, from foundations, from its own business activities, from sponsorship donations and from active participation in regional, international and other projects. The funds raised will be used to provide services of general interest in accordance with the mission of the BR.
