IIn South Africa, there are currently 6 registered Biosphere Reserves under UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme, these include (listed in order of registration achieved):

At present, there is a 6th Biosphere currently undergoing registration, this is the Magaliesberg Biosphere in the North West and Gauteng provinces.

In 2010, National Government (Dept of Environmental Affairs), as per UNESCO requirements, formed a National MaB Committee (NMC).   The NMC consists of a representative from each of the registered biosphere’s as well as relevant government representatives who come together to discuss relevant issues, policy and strategy on a national scale.    Within each of the provinces that have numerous biospheres (such as Cape Province and Limpopo Province), provincial committees have also been established thatmeet on a regular basis to discuss issues and strategies to be dealt with on a provincial level..

K2C supports and encourages partnerships, networking and joint projects with all biosphere’s in the country and apply the philosophy that working together will strengthen the outcome.
