Latin America and the Caribbean have few UNESCO Global Geoparks (10) compared to their territory. Nevertheless, these territories contribute to inclusion for local decision-making, promote development through nature-related tourism, and are observatories for adaptation to the effects of climate change.


Through presentations, networking and the presence of UNESCO Global Geoparks experts, the workshop aims to strengthen the capacities of Geoparks projects in the Southern Cone countries, Latin America. The workshop will take place at the Centro UniĆ³n Obreros of Cerro Largo (city of Melo) and will be attended by authorities of the Congress of Mayors, Departmental Mayors, and representatives of the National Geoparks Committee.
