Drones to characterize aquatic habitats of malaria vectors in the Amazon, Malaysian Borneo and Burkina Faso
Malaria control programmes rely on interventions targeting mosquito-breeding sites to reduce mosquito populations and malaria transmission. A precise knowledge of ecological characteristics of mosquito aquatic habitats is key for such interventions.
This webinar will have three presentations discussing how drones can help in the characterisation of aquatic habitats of malaria vectors in the Amazon, Malaysian Borneo and Burkina Faso. Presentations will be followed by an interactive discussion with the panellists and audience, addressing the use of drones to understand the ecological features of mosquito breeding sites.
Entomologists and vector biologist interested in know more about the use of new tools to understand the ecological features of aquatic habitats of malaria vectors. different ecological features of malaria vectors.
