This workshop took place during the
23rd Colloquium of African Geology
University of Johannesburg
January 12th 2011
The workshop at CAG23 was designed to raise awareness of GIRAF amongst the broader geosciences community in Africa and to collect input and ideas that could support the project’s goals. The GIRAF executive reviewed the scale of the task based on national reports from the Windhoek meeting and highlighted successes since then in mobilising the necessary resources and the self-help network.
