Ebola and Agriculture

Mapping farmland in Ebola affected areas of West Africa

Please note, this is a difficult task, and most suitable for very experienced OSM contributors.

Identification and mapping of farmlands and orchards in the countries affected by the recent Ebola virus outbreak

The recent Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa has caused major disruptions to the food production systems in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. Humanitarian organizations are forecasting the potential that millions of people will be threatened with food insecurity due to both a shortage of food and increased prices for the food that is available.

This project will map agricultural land use in the affected countries to help provide aid agencies with needed data for planning, coordination, mitigation and long term recovery efforts.
