Not attending EGU16? 

We’ll be posting slides/poster downloads from all GfGD contributions on our website after the event.

You can see some commentary throughout the week on both the GfGD Twitter feed (@Geo_Dev) and my personal account (@JoelCGill). The main conference tag is #EGU16.

Joel is the Founder/Director of Geology for Global Development (@Geo_Dev) an organisation working to support geologists to make a sustainable contribution to the fight against global poverty. He is an interdisciplinary researcher, with a PhD in geography (natural hazards), and research interests in multi-hazard frameworks, disaster risk reduction, rural water projects, and sustainable development. This work has taken him to Chile, China, Guatemala, India, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda. Joel is currently based at the British Geological Survey, and tweets at @JoelCGill.
