London: India's Bilal Habib was named as one of the six winners of the UNESCO's Young Scientist Awards for 2013.

The announcement was made by the International Co-ordinating Council of the Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme, which met at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) headquarters in Paris from May 27 to 30.

Habib won the award for designing and developing an Ecological Monitoring Programme involving local communities in Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve in Uttarakhand, a statement from the UNESCO said.

The MAB programme has been granting awards of up to $ 5,000 to each winner since 1989. These grants are intended to encourage young researchers to undertake work on ecosystems, natural resources and biodiversity. An additional two special awards have been financed by the Austrian MAB Committee since 2010.

The 2013 laureates of Young Scientist Awards in the MAB programme were selected from all over the world. The other five winners of this year's award are Julio Blas Garcia from Spain, Angela Camargo from Mexico, Hilaire Kouakou from Cote d'Ivoire, Atieh Kazemi Mojarad from Iran and Claudia Munera from Nicaragua.
