Hungary has joined Austria, Croatia, Serbia, and Slovenia in establishing the Mura-Drava-Danube Transboundary Biosphere Reserve, which has been recognized by UNESCO in its Man and the Biosphere Program, the Farm Ministry said, according to news agency MTI.
The biosphere reserve is the first of its kind where five countries are cooperating together, the ministry said. The size of the reserve is 943,000 hectares of which nearly 330,000 hectares are located in Hungary.
The purpose of establishing the biosphere reserve is the joint conservation and restoration of natural habitats and ecosystems, the conservation of biological diversity, and the development of a wide range of ecosystem services. The reserve also provides an important tool in learning different approaches to floodplain management.
