Island gains from attending global Biosphere gathering
Mr Longworth joined delegates from the host country (South Korea), Tanzania, the Gulf of Guinea, the Azores, the Philippines, Cambodia, Haiti, South Africa, Chile and the Maldives.
'It was particularly interesting to understand more about the challenges facing other parts of the world. While the event took place, Jeju had heavy rain from the outer edges of a typhoon which made landfall in Japan. Our colleague from Haiti travelled home into Hurricane Matthew.
'The Isle of Man's attendance at gatherings such as this will give us a greater understanding of, and commitment to, resolving global challenges.'
