Hi Everyone, I'm from india
Welcome MD Abdul. Glad you can join us
Hi geologist, following from Kenya,glad to join you.
Kindly write your questions in the chat
Thank you geological society of Kenya for organizing this educative webinar on SDGs.i also thank my former lectures like TINA,NYAMAI, MULWA AND ALL SPEAKERS
Thank You GSK for organizing such an educative webinar on SDGs.
wish to appreciate GSK for such a wonderful,informative session. request that you organize more such sessions and also give us at least a weeks notice--so that we make an informed participation with regards to contributing, from an informed perspective. Keep up the good job!
Am Titus Lutta from Ministry of Petroleum and Mining...My question is directed to Dr. Gill, are there any avenues for research collaborations and grants for Geological Studies on carbon capture and storage, hydrogen economy, geothermal and radioactive waste disposal? Thank you for your presentation.
What's the future of Geology/ Geophysics especially in East African region ?
It has been a great presentation by Dr. Joel Gill and the whole forum has been just as great. Thanks to GSK for this opportunity to participate.
Re: shortage of sand... Any estimates on kaolinite clay soil?
Great Sessions there. I am impressed by the idea of breaking away from our 'Silos'.
Thank you for the informative presentation.How has the national/regional policies and priorities affected the progress of attaining the SDGs through geosciences particularly in Kenya and how can this be improved?
Thank you very much and I look forward to future collaboration.
Many thanks for your question Titus Lutta. One option would be a bid for funding from the UNESCO International Geoscience Programme (https://en.unesco.org/international-geoscience-programme). This funding is designed to help bring together geoscientists from around the world, conduct some scoping work, and exchange skills and ideas. For larger collaborations and research projects, the UK has a joint funding opportunity with Kenya (https://www.newton-gcrf.org/impact/where-we-work/kenya/) and sustainable and renewable energy is one focus.
Regarding sand harvesting in the sea alluded to by Prof. Olago, how sustainable is this as you you likely to interfere with marine ecosystems. Very recently, fishermen in Mombasa complained of diminished fish stocks due to sand mining.
What is the role of Geoscientists in oil exploration especially wrt the potential for East Africa?
thank you for an educative forum and the latest information on our mother world
Question to Joel. is it possible for Kenyan to register with British geological society?
Yes it is - https://www.geolsoc.org.uk/ - the Society has a plan to change their fee structures next year to ensure it is lower for those outside the UK
thank you very much
Impressive. This motivates us to do more research and innovation in the geosciences field.
Thank you very much for the informative session.
Thankyou very much. Very informative
It was a pleasure to join today - and to be part of the discussion. Kenya has a really impressive, thriving, forward-looking geoscience community. I will be reflecting on the advice and insights from all the panellists. Thank you Tina for your excellent coordination and moderation.
