The European Federation of Geologists (EFG) expresses its strongest sympathies with the Turkish and Syrian people in these hard and sad post-earthquake times. We are ready to offer our geoscientific expertise and knowledge in the field of emergency response and to help at our best capabilities. Our hearts are with the Turkish and Syrian nations.

EFG, in collaboration with its Turkish colleagues, can collaborate on the ground to limit the dramatic effects of earthquakes in the area in the future, developing projects that facilitate, for example, access to water or the design of foundations.
