Strengthening Geoscience at Kabul University (1)

Tomorrow I join with a number of others in Leicester for a workshop, "Strengthening Geoscience at Kabul University - Shared Experiences from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kurdistan, Iraq, UK Germany and the Czech Republic".

I am grateful to Prof. Mike Petterson, one of GfGD's advisors and Head of Economic and Environmental Geosciences at the University of Leicester for the opportunity to join their talks and give a short presentation on Friday about Geology for Global Development, our vision, aims and work.

Look out next week for more on this event, with discussions on the importance of building technical capacity and supporting universities in developing countries.
