Case studies at Lebanese Biosphere Reserves_Wednesday’s Webinars up to March 30th, 2022

From January 19th up to March 23rd 2022, each Wednesday one webinar will take place to present the case studies carried on by students and researchers of the American University of Beirut, partner of the Edu-BioMed project, in the Lebanese Biosphere Reserves of Jabal Moussa and Shouf. Besides the case studies, also further research, teaching and outreach activities conducted in the BRs will be showcased.

In the context of the Edu-BioMed project, which concerns the Development of Competences for Education and Applied Research in UNESCO’s Mediterranean Biosphere Reserves, the  Lebanese and Moroccan universities involved in the project have developed case studies, through their students and researchers, supported by the scholarships offered in the framework of the Edu-BioMed mobility activities.

The topics of the case studies carried out are several as the Biosphere reserves, per definition of the UNESCO “are ‘learning places for sustainable development’. They are sites for testing interdisciplinary approaches to understanding and managing changes and interactions between social and ecological systems, including conflict prevention and management of biodiversity.”
