Each proclaimed biosphere is intended to fulfill 3 basic functions, which are complementary and mutually reinforcing:

  1. a conservation function - to contribute to the conservation of landscapes, ecosystems, species and genetic variation;
  2. a development function - to foster economic and human development which is socio-culturally and ecologically sustainable;
  3. a logistic function - to provide support for research, monitoring, education and information exchange related to local, national and global issues of conservation and development.
