Rift Valley Fever project mapping tool available from the FAO

Our VMerge partners at the FAO in Rome are maintaining a Rift Valley fever (RVF) mapping tool.  This is a regularly updated spreadsheet of past and present projects with a focus on RVF and its associated vectors.  The obective of the tool as stated by its authors are:

The idea of the database was to enable researchers, veterinary and public health services, as well as policy makers to quickly find information about the different research areas, partners involved, scope of work, time span and geographical coverage.

This is a fantastic initiative for which it is possible for the wider research community to contribute.  If you are aware of any relevant RVF projects not recorded on the spreadsheet, please contact the team using the email within the spreadsheet itself.

The latest version of the spreadsheet can be downloaded from the FAO RVF mapping tool page.
