Since February 2011 we have been posting on this blogspot site. We have collated over 243 posts on topics from disaster risk reduction, water and sanitation in the developing world, and sustainable mining. We regularly get over 4500 pageviews a month, and since we started have had more than 58,000 pageviews. Over the past 30 days we have had our highest ever number of pageviews!
Today the GfGD blog enters an exciting new phase. We have been invited to join a network of blogs hosted by the European Geosciences Union (EGU), and are delighted to accept and become part of this network.
The EGU is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the geosciences - for the benefit of humanity, worldwide. This is a vision that we at Geology for Global Development both applaud and strongly align ourselves with. From reducing the risk of natural disasters, improving the sustainable exploitation of natural resources and developing better environmental conservation - geoscience offers much to support a better and fairer world.
This blogspot site will be staying live, and used as a resource archive. However, from today, all new posts will at our new home - http://blogs.egu.eu/gfgd/ - please visit the new site, add it to your favourites, RSS feed etc.
