Abstract

The management of a Geopark is not the responsibility of the Department of Mineral and Geoscience only. As enshrined in the federal constitution, the land, including resources and geological heritage and the forest is owned by the state. Kinta valley Geopark is a government-owned land. Currently there are no formal administrative structure set up to manage it. Therefore to ensure Geopark concept can be fully appreciated by the Kinta Valley Geopark, it requires a management body so as to create a systematic administrative system. Based on what is described above a number of issues need to be addressed. Among them is a systematic Geopark administration to meet the Geopark development criteria outlined by UNESCO as well as to implement the Geopark development concept effectively. In addition to development issues that are often seen as not "environmentally friendly" should be seriously addressed without harming any parties including owners and operators of land nearby. This is very closely related to the jurisdiction and enforcement by the agency or department that manages the Geopark. In addtion, areas of geological heritage value by developing it in a controlled environment yet so widespread and not well coordinated in Kinta district. This is also closely related to the purpose of the establishment of the agency or department that manages the Geopark geological heritage conservation area (geosites). Therefore this study will explain 3 major aspects that are criteria neded to be recognized as a Global Geopark, the responsibilities and authority required by the Kinta Valley Geopark ,administrative framework should be created for the Kinta Valley Geopark management body to perform its functions and responsibilities.
