UNESCO Global Geoparks

In 2001, UNESCO started it’s cooperation with Geoparks. By 2004, 17 European and 8 Chinese Geoparks gathered in Paris to promote cooperation and sharing initiatives about the Geological Patrimony.
With the creation of this new program, the first to be approved in the last 40 years, the Geoparks that were included in the Global Geoparks Network, now integrate this UNESCO program.

Together with World Heritage Sites and Biosphere Reserves, UNESCO Global Geoparks form a complete range of Sustainable Development tools.
On November 17, 2015, the new International Geoscience and Geoparks Programme statutes were approved.
