The Famenne-Ardenne UNESCO Global Geopark in Belgium, encompassing councils like Beauraing, Durbuy, Hotton, Marche-en-Famenne, Nassogne, Rochefort, Tellin and Wellin, is a unique geological hub

Renowned for its extensive karstic phenomena, the Geopark merges heritage conservation with tourism and scientific research. In 2021, the area faced a tornado and severe floods, highlighting the need for resilience. Within RESILIAGE, the Geopark aims to strengthen socio-economic resilience against natural disasters, ensuring both the preservation of its geological wonders and the well-being of its communities.
