Charity description

Geology for Global Development (GfGD) logo
Geology for Global Development (GfGD) exists to champion the role of geology in sustainable international development, mobilising and reshaping the geology community to help deliver the UN Sustainable Development Goals (2015-2030).

Our vision is a world where...
  • Every geologist is equipped with the skills and understanding required to make a positive contribution to sustainable development.
  • The geology community is actively engaged in the design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of international development activities.
  • Organisations, governments and individuals have equal access to, and an understanding of, the geological science required to ensure sustainable development.

In 2015, international leaders agreed the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), aiming to eradicate global poverty, promote sustainable consumption patterns, and facilitate sustained and inclusive economic growth, social development and environmental protection. The geological sciences have the potential to play a vital role in addressing these challenges.

We’d love your support. If our vision excites you, please consider supporting our work.
