VeCTOR: Vector Climate Threat Online Resource (2020-2021)
Services for Copernicus. Development of a C3S demo case of a prognostic climate-driven vector-borne-disease risk assessment online platform, by exploiting the potential of the C3S infrastructure, including the diverse set of datasets in the CDS catalogue and the CDS toolbox. The underlying objectives are to:
- Enable planning effective management strategies, and minimize health impacts from future disease outbreaks;
- Highlight and exploit the environmental dependency of vectors, such as mosquitoes, sand flies, and ticks through a CDS data-driven, and predictive online mapping resource.
The VeCTOR demo case will be provided as a service to scientific experts, decision- and policy-makers, and to the public through identified citizen-scientist initiatives.
