Impressions of Rustem Yegenberdiev (Aksu-Zhabagly Biosphere Reserve): I took part in the 6th East Asian Biosphere Reserve Network (EABRN) International Training Workshop on “Sustainable Management of Biosphere Reserves”, 20-30 May, 2015. Wudalianchi, China.
The Workshop was organized by EABRN Secretariat, UNESCO Beijing Office, International Centre on Space Technologies for Natural and Cultural and Cultural Heritage under the Auspices of UNESCO (HIST),
Wudalianchi Administration Committee, HIST Harbin Base, Chinese National Committee for MAB. It was supported by The Republic of Korea National Commission for UNESCO (KNCU), The Republic of Korea Ministry of Environment.
The Training Workshop included lectures, discussions, a field work component in Wudalianchi Biosphere Reserve and a session at the Harbin Base of HIST. The course promoted cooperative research on biodiversity conservation and socio-economic development in and around BRs. Special attention was given to developing the capacity of BR managers through the application of modern technologies and special tools.
We stayed in 8 days in Wudalianchi Global Geopark Hotel. Lectures and 2 days field trip in Wudalianchi BR gave us lot of knowledge and experience. We had interative communications with experts from UNESCO headquarters, ERAIFT (a regional school of UNESCO in Africa), Korea, HIST, and others.
I thank the MAB committee of Kazakhstan headed by Professor Roman Jashenko and all the organizers of the Workshop. I hope the knowledge I get from the 6th EABRN International Training Workshop will help me in biodiversity conservation of our country.
