“GEOPARKS DEVELOPMENT & MANAGEMENT”

with Special Workshop on Geosites Development & Geotourism

Venue: LANGKAWI  UNESCO GLOBAL GEOPARK,

KEDAH, MALAYSIA

Date: 8th -12th May 2017

 

Background

The concept of Sustainable Development championed by the Global Geoparks Network (GGN) is proven to be one of the most successful models in sustainable regional development. Tailing form the increasing number of Global Geoparks, there is a need to ensure that the true GGN concept of sustainable development is cascaded down to the geopark managers/administrators. This certainly will increase sustainability of a Geopark, but this is a huge task for Geopark managers.

Hence, there is a pressing need to connect all the Geopark Managers in this region to share their experience, challenges, and best practices in steering their respective Geoparks towards achieving sustainable development goal vision by the Geopark Concept.
