In French; Géomètres Sans Frontières (GSF).

GSF is a French Non-Profit Organization which was created about 20 years ago.

At first, it was mostly providing internships in emerging countries to students from the three French Land and Geomatic Engineering Schools. Since 2009, Claire Galpin (French Chartered Land Surveyor) took over the presidency of the NGO and has given a new vision to GSF: creating a humanist platform focused on land activities.

Objective 1: Support projects in needs of land tenure expertise; GSF provides technical assistance, project management and/or equipment to various development and scientific projects; topographical survey, land information (including land registration and management) system establishment, land tenure policy, etc...

Objective 2: Exchange ideas and promote education; GSF gathers professionals with various qualifications and skills in order to share experiences and improve land tenure management throughout the world. GSF especially emphasizes the professional exchange between emerging and developed countries, and facilitates technical trainings to future land tenure professionals throughout the world.
