MINETT UNESCO BIOSPHERE has officially become part of the worldwide network of biosphere reserves.

On 28 October 2020, the Minett region was recognised by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve. Luxembourg is now part of the scientific MAB programme, which was founded in the 1970s. In 2021, there were 714 biosphere reserves in 129 countries. Thanks to the worldwide network, they can share their experience and knowledge with each other.

The biosphere reserve is managed by PRO-SUD, an inter-municipal syndicate consisting of the 11 municipalities that together form the MINETT UNESCO BIOSPHERE. The main objectives of PRO-SUD are the sustainable development and promotion of the identity of the southern region through the implementation of territorial strategies and the improvement of the living environment of the region’s inhabitants.
