GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF NAMIBIA

KEY STATISTICS

  • 23% of all participating countries are African countries

  • out of the countries serving data, 17% are African countries

  • But:

  • only 52% of all African countries participate in OneGeology

  • out of those only 30%, or 15% of all African countries, serve data

  • out of all non-participating countries, 25% are African countries

  • 27% of the countries not serving data are from the African continent

GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF NAMIBIA

However, simply counting countries does not take the area covered into consideration, and a look at the OneGeology map clearly indicates that Africa is the continent with the largest areas neither covered in green nor in yellow.

GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF NAMIBIA

THERE CLEARLY IS A PROBLEM!

Earth Sciences for Namibia’s Sustainable Development


GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF NAMIBIA

REASONS

  • The problems are manifold, and include:

  • limited access to the web

  • lack of technology and technological skills

  • lack of state-of-the-art geological data to be posted

  • The limited access to the web leads to non-awareness of OneGeology, and

  • non-awareness of the benefits that can be derived from OneGeology.

Internet?!?

INNOVATIVE THINKING IS REQUIRED!

SOLUTIONS

  • ONGOING:

  • Organisation of African Geological Surveys

  • OneGeology nformation board at the

  • Geological Survey of Namibia entrance

SOLUTIONS

  • TO BE DONE:.

  • continued lobbying

  • Engage Geolgical Society of Africa

  • finding support for countries that are

  • currently not in a position to serve

  • their data
