Global Geoparks Network GGN of UNESCO



Web: www.globalgeopark.org

 

The Executive Board of UNESCO, to support the efforts of the Member States to highlight areas or nature parks with particular geological features, decided in 2004 to propose the creation of Geoparks, designed the preservation and promotion of geological heritage of each region.  The Commission recognizes that the geological structures and landscapes have obvious influence on the development of societies, human culture and cultural diversity of the world, decided to establish the Global Geoparks Network under the auspices of UNESCO.

 

An area to be designated by UNESCO as a Geopark, must have a special geological heritage and also be able to document the importance of the area through archaeological, ecological, historical or cultural interest.

 

The members of the Global Geoparks Network of UNESCO cooperate among them, with state authorities, local communities and individuals to promote and implement methods for conservation, enhancement and sustainable management of geological heritage.

 

By October 2012 the members of the Global Geoparks Network reached 90 in 27 countries.
