Geological Society of Africa, Ethiopia

The Geological Society of Africa (GSAf) is an organization aiming to: promote the understanding of Earth sciences and improve standards of earth science’s education and research in Africa; provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of information across national boundaries between scientists, associations and institutions engaged in African Geology and earth resources; promote the development and sustainable management of the continent’s resources, advance its socio-economic development; and improving natural hazards assessment and disaster mitigation. It publishes the Journal of African Earth Sciences (AJES by Elsevier publishers) and has a monthly electronic newsletter that is published in its website and also distributed among its readers. The biannual Colloquium of African Geology (CAG) is its flagship where most geologists working and doing research in Africa get together to present their scientific results and exchange ideas. It cooperates with the African Union Commission and the European Union Commission among others to implement the Africa Mining Vision in the raw materials sector.
