Management of resources or the environment is often multi-jurisdictional, or requires input from many different stakeholders, requiring agreements of different types to be made. For example, Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba had ten cooperative agreements in 1990, one of which was with the Riding Mountain Biosphere Reserve, to allow for park staff to be on Biosphere Committees and to help with activities and projects. These documents follow the creation of an Inventory of Cooperative
Agreements as well as the creation of a Memorandum of Understanding with Environment Canada/Canadian Parks Service. Cooperation Plans were revisited in 2002.
In 1995, the UNESCO International Conference on Biosphere Reserves was held in Seville, Spain. At that meeting a world network of biosphere reserves was established. In October 2000, a conference was held in Pamplona, Spain, entitled “Seville+5: International Expert Meeting on the Implementation of the Seville Strategy for the World Network of Biosphere Reserves 1995-
2000.” A meeting was also held in November 2000 in Paris for the 159th Session of UNESCO of the International Coordinating Committee on the Man and Biosphere Programme.
