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

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