Many of the world’s most pressing humanitarian issues fall into categories where geoscientists can make significant contributions because of their unique and advanced knowledge about the earth. These issues include water, sanitation, and hygiene; food security; disaster risk reduction, which encompasses landslides, earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes; and environmental and cultural conservation.
Since 2008, the Geoscientists *without* Borders® (GWB) program has been working to build resilient communities where geoscience expertise and technology can be applied to a humanitarian need.
