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.

For the period 2018-2021, thirteen geoparks were officially endorsed by the UNESCO Executive Board on 17 April 2018 (consult it here)
