For the aspiring UNESCO Global Geoparks, the validation mission annually taking place from May to mid August is a critical event for the possible grant of UNESCO designation. On this occasion, selected evaluators with great expertise and experiences would carry out a field validation of the aspiring geoparks. The validation aims to evaluate the applicant, carefully review UGGp criteria, inter alia, the boundary, geoheritage significance and management; and to provide constructive recommendations.

Following the schedule, in March 2020, UNESCO and the Global Geopark Network officially launch a call for evaluators to conduct the mission of 2020. The due date for the application is 15th April, 2020.

The validation team made up of two experts, specializing in geology heritage, conservation, sustainable development, geopark management etc., will conduct a 4-day trip to the new applicant. Activities include site visits, meeting, and discussion with the management board for exchange of observation and information. After the field trip, validators will prepare and submit a comprehensive assessment to UNESCO Secretariat and UNESCO Global Geopark Council for review.

In the amid of the novel corona virus of which enormous impacts have been felt worldwide, it is not yet known to Ly Son – Sa Huynh Geopark any change on the schedule of the validation mission, which was planned to take place in July 2020.
