UNESCO Global Geoparks, Biosphere Reserves and World Heritage Sites UNESCO Global Geoparks, together with the other two UNESCO site designations Biosphere Reserves and World Heritage Sites, give a complete picture of celebrating our heritage while at the same time conserving the world’s cultural, biological and geological diversity, and promoting sustainable economic development. Biosphere Reserves focus on the harmonised management of biological and cultural diversity World Heritage Sites promote the conservation of natural and cultural sites of outstanding universal value,Global Geoparks give international recognition for sites that promote the importance and significance of protecting the Earth’s geodiversity through actively engaging with the local communities.What is a Biosphere Reserve?In IMPACT project, two natural sites are classified as UNESCO Biosphere reserves. MAB Reserve "Collemeluccio-Montedimezzo Alto Molise"and "Le Marais Audomarois" au sein du Parc naturel régional Caps et Marais d'OpaleBiosphere reserves are areas comprising terrestrial, marine and coastal ecosystems. Each reserve promotes solutions reconciling the conservation of biodiversity with its sustainable use. Biosphere reserves are ‘Science for Sustainability support sites’ – special places for testing interdisciplinary approaches to understanding and managing changes and interactions between social and ecological systems, including conflict prevention and management of biodiversity.  Biosphere reserves are nominated by national governments and remain under the sovereign jurisdiction of the states where they are located. Their status is internationally recognized.

It is one of the pilot sites of the IMPACT projectUNESCO Global Geoparks are single, unified geographical areas where sites and landscapes of international geological significance are managed with a holistic concept of protection, education and sustainable development. A UNESCO Global Geopark uses its geological heritage, in connection with all other aspects of the area’s natural and cultural heritage, to enhance awareness and understanding of key issues facing society, such as using our earth’s resources sustainably, mitigating the effects of climate change and reducing natural disasters-related risks. By raising awareness of the importance of the area’s geological heritage in history and society today, UNESCO Global Geoparks give local people a sense of pride in their region and strengthen their identification with the area. The creation of innovative local enterprises, new jobs and high quality training courses is stimulated as new sources of revenue are generated through geotourism, while the geological resources of the area are protected.  Link to the official site UNESCO Global Geoparks Sign up for the IMPACT newsletter Subscribe now IMPACT Leaflet Download IMPACT flyer Download Periurban Parks, their role in EU Policies download (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.10"; js.async = true; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs); }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); IMPACT Tweets by IMPACT
What are the learning cases? Learning cases are specific sites in each region which are chosen by Innocastle partners and regional stakeholders in order to evaluate a specific issue related to a targeted policy instrument. The goal is to define opportunities and bottlenecks within the relation between the site and the targeted policy instrument. In Innocastle, some partners use the Dutch approach developed by Gelders Genootschap, analyzing challenges, opportunities and stakeholders on various spatial levels: 1. A region or regional zone to which the country/ landed estate belongs to; 2. The country or landed estate as a part of a wider cultural landscape (including neighbouring country and landed estates, villages, etc.); 3. The country or landed estate as a heritage ensemble (including a country house or castle, side buildings, parklands, woodlands, farms, etc); 4. The country house or castle as the main building, the core of the country or landed estate. Learning cases in each region Read an overview of all the learning cases in Flanders, Gelderland, Badajoz and Romania and more detailed descriptions of each learning case here.
