Project ID 2210211022

As the only UN Agency with a mandate in earth sciences, and under its flagship International Geoscience and Geoparks Programme (IGGP), UNESCO and its statutory partners the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) and the Global Geoparks Network (GGN) will continue to foster capacity building, knowledge exchange and international research cooperation to promote sustainable practices, help build resilience against geo-hazards, empower early career scientists in the developing world and local communities in exploring, extracting and managing their natural resources in an efficient, safe and sustainable manner. UNESCO Global Geoparks will be used to engage further in climate, biodiversity, DRR and other SDG related actions, including through dedicated educational programmes.
