Two Korean research bodies have agreed to use their geosciences technology to create a combined database of Africa's geography and natural resources.

On April 25, the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) and the National Geographic Information Institute (NGII) signed an MOU outlining cooperation on creating a combined database covering all of Africa's geography and natural resources.

According to the agreement, the two organizations will work with the African Union, the United Nations and the World Bank to build a database that consolidates information about Africa's geological features and mineral deposits into one comprehensive map.

"We are confident that tapping into the research undertaken by KIGAM and the NGII in areas such as geology and mineral resources will have a synergistic effect that will bring about excellent results," said KIGAM's President Synn.
