This conference was held to explain and raise awareness on geo-diversity, and to deliberate on the needed strategies for their conservation, like founding of a geopark. It mainly targets academics, but also students, scientists, engineers, authorities and practitioners. It was prepared in collaboration between ACE and CREEMO (Centre de Recherche en Environnement-Espace Méditerranée Orientale) of Saint. Joseph University (USJ) and hosted at USJ.
