The biosphere reserves (BR) are especially selected areas designated to serve as a tool to fulfill the MAB Program goals. Specific feature of the BRs is the fact that they are not focused on nature conservation only. Their activities should be evenly complemented by support of those human activities in the landscape, which lead to its positive sustainable use and development.
The Lower Morava Biosphere Reserve is the youngest and the smallest of all Czech BRs (2003, 349 km2). It was created through the extension of the former Palava Biosphere Reserve (designated in 1986) by including the Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape and the floodplain forests in the Podluzi Region, in the triangle between the towns of Breclav and Mikulcice and the confluence of the Morava and Dyje rivers. As the only Czech BR it is not identical to any Protected Landscape Area or National Park. It encompasses 25 specially protected areas including Palava Protected Landscape Area, two Ramsar sites of internationally important wetlands, 20 locations of European network Natura 2000, Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape listed as UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, two Nature Parks etc.
The Lower Morava is the only Czech BR that enjoys a double UNESCO recognition, making this area unique in an international perspective as well. It is also the only BR in the whole country which is being managed by a non-governmental organization - public benefit company. The company is stakeholder based with direct management participation of communities, entrepreneurs, professional associations, Mendel University and another NGO. The company serves as „sustainable development agency“ carrying out tangible projects (international projects, elimination of old environmental burdens, World Heritage Site Management Plan of Lednice-Valtice Area, Site-management of Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape, restoration of landscape greenery for the communities, publishing and education activities etc.). The philosophy of the Lower Morava BR has been set from the very beginning with the objective to show that, despite importance of the nature conservation as one of the main goals of the BR, it cannot be the only goal. More important is to secure management of cultural landscape in cooperation and by mutual consent of respective landscape professionals (farmers, foresters, water managers etc.), landowners, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders.
The Lower Morava Biosphere Reserve was, as the first Czech BR, declared in 2014 to be a model area for other BRs within the World Network of BRs.
