UNESCO, Danone Waters Germany and the German Commission for UNESCO established a cooperation for the benefit of German biosphere reserves in 2008. Danone Waters has provided financial support to ten selected projects in German biosphere reserves, on issues such as education, nature conservation or sustainable fishery. This brochure presents successful practices that might be replicated in biosphere reserves worldwide. It also demonstrate how a private sector collaboration can lead to tangible benefits in UNESCO biosphere reserves – as model regions for sustainable development.
