Francis, George, Ed.
Environmental education and training have been key elements of Unesco's Program on Man and the Biosphere (MAB) since its inception in 1971. The MAB Program is an intergovernmental program of research, training, demonstration and distribution of information, aimed at providing the scientific background and the trained personnel to deal with problems related to the rational use and conservation of natural resources. A paper entitled "Overview of Environmental Education and Training in Biosphere Reserves" (G. Francis) was the main symposium presentation. Included are six other papers that discuss the use of biosphere reserves in the following countries: Indonesia; Colombia; Thailand; France; the German Democratic Republic; and the Soviet Union. Activities of the Unesco/UNEP International Environmental Education Program (1975-1987) are summarized. (YP)
