FAW Risk index - 1.0

May 2018
The designations employed and the presentation of material in the map do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of FAO concerning the legal or constitutional status of any country, territory or sea area, or concerning the delimitation of frontiers.

The FAW Risk index map incorporates diverse socio-economic and agro-ecological data so that responders can visualise where the underlying risk of household food insecurity due to Fall Armyworm is highest. The tool consists of a number of layers allowing users to disaggregate risk into its constituent parts. By highlighting potential "hotspots", the tool is intended to assist decision-makers in prioritising and preparing for early action in targeted areas.

The tool developed by FAO is part of innovative projects awarded funding by the Government of Belgium.
