The purpose of installing secretariat offices in Jeju and Menorca instead of at UNESCO headquarters is to encourage the two BRs to offer active contributions to the Network. The motion to maintain two technical secretariats was voted for at the first international Network meeting in Menorca.
Technical secretariat offices of the Network are given the mission to support the network activities with clerical works, to organize and manage the research activities, and to run the education and training program for the BR managers. As for the researches, it was decided that Jeju secretariat would be devoted to the research area on climate change while Menorca on sustainable development. Support for the Network activities should be carried out in close cooperation under the leadership of UNESCO headquarters.
Jeju technical secretariat carries out the following activities
to accomplish its mission.
