CAB ReviewFull Text

This review outlines a conceptual framework that links climate-related risk components (hazard, exposure and vulnerability) to the genetics and genomics tools used for developing new crop varieties to promote adaptation to extreme weather events and to mitigate risks related to the effects of...

AbstractFull Text

Outbreaks of Rift Valley fever (RVF), a relatively recently emerged zoonosis endemic to large parts of sub-Saharan Africa that has the potential to spread beyond the continent, have profound health and socio-economic impacts, particularly in communities where resilience is already low. Here output...

AbstractFull Text

The effect of climate change on the spatiotemporal dynamics of malaria transmission is studied using an unprecedented ensemble of climate projections, employing three diverse bias correction and downscaling techniques, in order to partially account for uncertainty in climate-driven malaria...

AbstractFull Text

Currently, two broad types of approach for predicting the impact of climate change on vector-borne diseases can be distinguished: (i) empirical-statistical (correlative) approaches that use statistical models of relationships between vector and/or pathogen presence and environmental factors; and...

AbstractFull Text

Using mathematical modelling tools, we assessed the potential for land use change (LUC) associated with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change low- and high-end emission scenarios (RCP2.6 and RCP8.5) to impact malaria transmission in Africa. To drive a spatially explicit, dynamical malaria...
