The authors review lessons learned from case studies of biosphere reserves in western Africa and France including the evolution of the concept of biosphere reserves and its application in different contexts. The paper highlights the importance of building stakeholder dialogue early in the planning phase to allow for dialogue to become formalised, ritualised, and translated both in terms of biosphere reserve management and in terms of political support.
