Through educational activities for the local people and visitors, the Geopark gives information on the source of geological hazards and ways to reduce their impact including disaster response strategies.
These efforts build important capacity and contribute to building more resilient communities that have the knowledge and skills to effectively respond to potential geological hazards.
