Africa-Spain biosphere reserve promoted

SPAIN and Morocco have signed an unprecedented cross-border agreement protecting a biosphere reserve.

The agreement has been formed in a bid to encourage sustainable development in the Mediterranean Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve established by UNESCO in 2006.

The 907,185 hectare area which stretches into the Malaga and Cadiz provinces incorporates the natural parks of the Sierra de las Nieves, Los Alcornocales, Sierra de Grazalema and Del Estrecho.

On the Moroccan side parks including Talassemtane and Jbel Moussa are included.

The latest agreement will ensure communities from both nations are dedicated to research, education and conservation of the natural environments.
