Guidelines for geoconservation in protected and conserved areas (Arabic version)

Authors: Crofts, Roger, Gordon, J. E. (John E.), Brilha, José, Gray, Murray, Gunn, John, Larwood, Jonathan, Santucci, Vincent L., Tormey, Daniel, Worboys, Graeme L.,

These Guidelines are intended to help improve the conservation and management of geoheritage and geodiversity in protected and conserved areas and recognition of the interrelationships and interactions with biological features and processes. They are not a textbook on geoconservation management practice, but rather set out the essential background, context and principles. The use of best practice examples from around the world will hopefully give users renewed confidence in looking after geoheritage and in connecting geoconservation with biodiversity conservation.
