European Diploma for Protected Areas renewed for Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve in Belarus

European Diploma for Protected Areas renewed for Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve in Belarus

VITEBSK, 13 October (BelTA) – EU experts renewed the European Diploma for Protected Areas for the Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve in Belarus through 2030, BelTA learned from the nature protection institution.

“The final resolution on the renewal of the European Diploma for Protected Areas awarded to the Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve was adopted on 23 September 2020 at the meeting of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. According to the document, the diploma was renewed for the next 10 years, until 11 September 2030,” representatives of the reserve said.

The European Diploma of the highest category A was first awarded to the reserve on 11 September 1995. It confirms that a conservation institution has an exceptional value in terms of conservation and boasts a high level of management. If all criteria are met, the diploma is renewed every five or ten years. The last time the ten-year document was issued to the Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve was in 2010. European experts visited the reserve with an inspection mission in June 2019.

Another holder of the European Diploma for Protected Areas in Belarus is the Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park.
