    Abstract The Operating Unit Ishikawa/Kanazawa, United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS OUIK) was established in April 2008 with the support of the local governments of Kanazawa City and Ishikawa Prefecture. With the aim of realizing a sustainable society from the basic standpoint of conserving biocultural diversity, OUIK promotes dialogues between local stakeholders and the international community, engages in research activities in collaboration with various individuals and organizations, and advances human resources development at the local level. As part of these efforts, OUIK published the second booklet of the series on biocultural diversity: Mount Hakusan Biosphere Reserve: Creating a new path for communities and nature in May 2016. The booklet was published to provide information on sustainable community building in Mount Hakusan Biosphere Reserve, and is intended to serve as an instructional resource summarizing its many lessons. It contains articles from a variety of contributors, from those with the perspective of practitioners familiar on the site to those looking at the area from a global perspective. Reading through this booklet makes one realize the many wonders of nature and culture in Mount Hakusan Biosphere Reserve, and the research, conservation and educational efforts that have been made over the years at the local level to protect and pass them on. Like the prism that disperses sunlight into the colors of the rainbow, the framework provided by the Mount Hakusan Biosphere Reserve acts to highlight the diverse values of the Circum-Hakusan Area. We sincerely hope that this booklet will serve as a base for learning between Mount Hakusan Biosphere Reserve and the World Network of Biosphere Reserves, which encompass over 170 million people worldwide.
