Dyfi Biosphere

The Dyfi Biosphere is a UNESCO site based around the Dyfi valley between Machynlleth and Ynyslas on the river Dyfi side and stretches from Aberdyfi to Aberystwyth on the coastal side. The Dyfi Biosphere aims to promote environmental and social sustainability. Aberystwyth is represented on the Biosphere as is Montgomeryshire, Meirionydd and Ceredigion.

The area around the river Dyfi is a special place to live, work and to visit – special for its people, its culture and its outstanding environment.

It hosts some of the finest examples of special landscapes and wildlife areas in Europe. And in addition has a community that cares about, and for, this special place.

The Dyfi Biosphere is part of a network of sites throughout the world where information and experiences can be shared and new ideas explored.

We work locally to showcase innovation in how local heritage, culture and economy can thrive in harmony with the natural environment.
