The Geological Society of Africa
The Geological Society of Africa (GSAf) was established in 1973 to encourage geoscientific collaboration and cooperation across the continent.
Its main objectives are:
to promote understanding of the Earth sciences and improve standards of Earth science education and research in Africa;
to provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of information across national boundaries between scientists, associations and institutions engaged in African geology and earth resources;
to promote the development and sustainable management of the continent’s earth resources, to advance its socio-economic development; and
to improve natural hazards assessment and disaster mitigation.
