According to UNESCO BRs 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. They are places that provide local solutions to global challenges. Each site promotes solutions reconciling the conservation of biodiversity with its sustainable use ( 
The activities conducted at AUB are within the scope of EduBioMed, which aims at strengthening, ameliorating, and upgrading academic activity at four Moroccan and Lebanese Higher Education Institutions in the context of Mediterranean Biosphere Reserves, in collaboration and through networking with Biosphere Reserves' stakeholders, public administrations and EU Partners.
