Project Description

The goal of this project is to foster collaborative training and research for the management of mosquito-borne diseases. We propose an interdisciplinary approach to gain a better understanding of the way in which hydrological modeling and water management methods can affect the distribution of mosquito vectors and thus reduce prevalence of infectious diseases that are vectored by mosquitoes. The project is supported by Focal Point Project.
