CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR A PANAFGEO TRAINING

WP2 – Mineral Resources Assessment

5-16 June 2017, Windhoek, Namibia

“PanAfGeo” for “Pan-African Support to the EuroGeoSurveys-Organisation of African Geological Surveys (EGS-OAGS) Partnership” is a project which supports the training of geoscientific staff from African Geological Surveys through the development of an innovative training programme that includes the acquisition and development of important professional skills that complement their qualifications and technical skills. The training programme is carried out by world-class geoscientific experts coming from African and European Geological Surveys.

PanAfGeo is co-funded by the European Commission (Directorate-General of Development and International Cooperation) and by a Consortium of 12 European Geological Surveys coordinated by the French Geological Survey (BRGM).

The “PanAfGeo Charter for Trainees” provides the general quality framework for selection of trainees who will attend the training sessions carried out in the frame of the PanAfGeo Project. This Charter is awarded for the full duration of the PanAfGeo Project. Implementation of the Charter will be monitored and violation of any of its principles and commitments may lead to its withdrawal by the PanAfGeo Project Coordination.

The overall objective and impact of PanAfGeo is to improve the governance and sustainable use of African mineral resources and related infrastructures. The specific objective and outcome is to strengthen the knowledge and skills in Africa’s mining sector and specifically of African Geological Surveys, to make them able to contribute – in their respective countries – with their expertise and data to informed decision-making and good governance as well as sustainable use of mineral resources and reinforcing the capacity of the Organisation of African Geological Surveys (OAGS).

Mineral resources topic constitutes the second main interest for staff of African Geological Surveys as expressed in the context of PanAfGeo.

“WP2 – Mineral Resources Assessment” aims to enhance the skills and knowledge of African Geological Surveys staff in mineral resources and to give them guidelines so as to accurately assess raw materials (i.e. metals, industrial rocks and minerals) and provide information to stakeholders, clients and civil society.
