GeoparkLIFE Guides and Toolkits

GeoparkLIFE Guides and Toolkits The most effective way to utilize these models is to incorporate them into an existing management structure; be it a local authority, a destination management organisation (such as a UNESCO Global Geopark / World Heritage Site / Man and Biosphere, a National Park etc) or a Local Development Company.

The main objective of the GeoparkLIFE Tourism for conservation programme was to strengthen the integration of tourism and conservation, seeking ways to reconcile tourism development with the conservation of natural and cultural heritage.

Through the learning of the project we have developed a suite of destination management tools, guides and case studies. These can be adapted and made fit-for-purpose in other destinations. The adaptation will require resources: GeoparkLIFE was fortunate to funding provided through EU LIFE and our partner agencies.
