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.
Alex Ogutu

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?

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.
Alfred Opere

What is the role of Geoscientists in oil exploration especially wrt the potential for East Africa?
David Nzioki

Question to Joel. is it possible for Kenyan to register with British geological society?
Joel Gill
01:38:04
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

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.
