Résumé

The approach herein is in compliance with the criteria of the Statutory Framework of the World Network of Biosphere Reserves of UNESCO. Article 9 of the Framework provides for a periodic review every ten years. In this regard, it should be mentioned that the Lac-Saint-Pierre World Biosphere Reserve was created in November 2000. Therefore, the periodic review of the Reserve must be conducted at the end of 2010. Furthermore, the Canadian Commission for UNESCO specifies out that the “periodic review” requires biosphere reserves to focus on their successes and obstacles, their vision, their governance and their compliance with the Statutory Framework of the World Network of Biosphere Reserves of UNESCO over the last decade, as well as their prospects for years to come1. Four information sources were used by the reviewers. The first source refers directly to the Lac Saint-Pierre Biosphere Reserve Nomination Form submitted to UNESCO in January 2000. The second source refers to the Working Paper presented on 2 July 2010. This initial document proved very useful and allowed the drafting team of the Coopérative de solidarité de la Réserve mondiale de la biosphère du Lac-Saint-Pierre (CSRMBLSP, Annex 1 – List of acronyms) to take advantage of positive, formative suggestions from the reviewers. The third information source refers to the nine (9) interviews conducted jointly by the reviewers and to the five (5) additional interviews performed by one of the evaluators. These interviews with stakeholders in the Reserve’s territory were carried out between 7 July and 26 October 2010 (Annex 2). The fourth information source is the final document produced by the CSRMBLSP and submitted to the reviewers on 18 October 2010. The approach adopted by the reviewers initially consists in compiling findings and analyses. Secondly, the report contains recommendations stemming directly from the analyses. It should be pointed out that these recommendations are not related to the Reserve's financial capability, but rather to a vision of priority actions to be taken during the 2010-2020 decade. In fact, the reviewers recommend that the CSRMBLSP focus the Reserve's actions more on the priorities of the Madrid Action Plan for Biosphere Reserves (2008-2013). Finally, the structure of the reviewers' report is consistent with the main parts of the questionnaire proposed by the Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCU). We wish to thank Ms. Dominique Potvin, of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, for the logistic support she provided.
