Geology for Global Development is an organisation that aims to educate geoscientists about the role of geology in the reduction of poverty. It encompasses a wide range of disciplines within the field of Earth sciences; from geochemistry and hydrogeology, to geophysics and structural geology. All of these play a vital role in international development and improving the standard of living around the world.
