Mapping Intersection of Water, Climate and Disease Transmission
Funding Year: 2018
Research Areas: Freshwater, Public Health
Understanding the relationship between water resources, climate change and mobility can help us better understand disease transmission.
This project will combine detailed ethnographic and epidemiological fieldwork with remote sensing of water resources to create simulation models exploring future climate change scenarios. This effort will create maps to help government ministries and nongovernmental organizations develop combined economic and epidemiological interventions for communities in Africa.
