Abstract

The generation of economic growth through mineral development activities can play an important role in supporting developing countries to achieve positive economic objectives. This report assesses the geoscience capability of 138 developing countries in four continent regions as identified by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). These countries are assessed using eleven sub-categories which can be grouped into four broad categories including: geological, geoscience survey capacity, socio-political risk, and geological aid. The comprehensive data compiled are largely presented graphically to facilitate ready comparisons between countries and continents. Recommendations for targeting and future structuring programs for maximum program impact are provided. The report utilises and synthesises both international information available to the public and commercial information obtained by Geoscience Australia. It has been prepared for the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID: http://www.ausaid.gov.au/Pages/home.aspx). The report will be published online by AusAID and as a GA Record.
