GEOLOGY FOR GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT is delighted to announce the launch of its new website:

Why not check it out today!

Thanks for reading our blog, Geology for Global Development, examining some of the ways in which geologists can contribute to fighting poverty and improving lives. From working on clean water resources, to improving agricultural productivity, modeling natural hazards and helping communities adapt and prepare to improving infrastructure - geologists have a significant role to play in international development.

As mentioned in a post back in May I am currently working on establishing an organisation, Geology for Global Development, that  will work to promote global development to student and recent graduate geologists, as well as others in the field. Geology for Global Development will work to inform and engaging people in the key discussions and debates, provide  opportunities for people to use their skills to alleviate poverty, train others and develop resources for NGOs and their overseas partners. It will also work to promote the role of geologists, their skills and knowledge to NGOs and other development organisations.

I am delighted to launch our new website at where you can read more about our work and vision, see our latest blog posts and get in touch with us. Please do check it out and if you would like to get more information then fill in the details on the 'Join Us' page. Our blog will still be posted on this site - although you can get links to all the latest posts direct from our new website.

Thanks for your support,

Joel Gill
Director, Geology for Global Development
