Geoscientists without Borders (GWB) awards its first ever project in USA

Geoscientists without Borders (GWB) is excited to announce another year of support from the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) Foundation. The AAPG Foundation continues to go above and beyond to support these incredible projects that help improve the livelihoods of thousands of people globally.

Baker Hughes Foundation continues support for two SEG programs

At the end of 2023 Q1/Q2 call for applications, GWB Steering Committee selected two projects for funding. One of those projects is in Southern India.

More than 60% of India is experiencing high to extremely high-water stress, with scarce, overused, and contaminated surface water supplies. Groundwater depletion, caused by the expansion of groundwater-based irrigation during the Green Revolution, poses a significant challenge to food and water security. Climate change further exacerbates the situation.

How geoscientists help strengthen food and water security in Africa

In 2021, Cyclone Idai hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi. Idai was one of the most powerful cyclones to hit the southern hemisphere in two decades. Food and water insecurity connected to extreme events like cyclones, droughts, and floods, can force entire communities and regional populations to be displaced. Such population movements are evident in agriculture-dependent locations like Ghana in western Africa. How can applied geosciences help solve the population displacement problem within the global climate crisis and
