Under UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB), there are currently 81 biosphere reserves recognized as part of the World Network of Biosphere Reserves in Africa. These are distributed across 33 countries in the region. While biosphere reserves in Northern African countries belong to ArabMAB, UNESCO's regional MAB network for Arab countries, biosphere reserves in Sub-Saharan Africa are organised in the AfriMAB regional network.
