Gallery: 2018 UNESCO Global Geoparks

 

UNESCO’s Executive Board today gave the UNESCO Global Geopark label to 13 sites demonstrating the diversity of the planet’s geology. These inscriptions were recommended by the UNESCO Global Geoparks Council.

UNESCO Global Geoparks are territories that promote geodiversity through community-led initiatives to enhance regional sustainable development, notably through sustainable tourism. They help monitor and promote awareness of climate change and natural disasters, and many help local communities prepare disaster mitigation strategies.
