The publications below were developed to support decision-making for the prevention and control of highly pathogenic avian influenza through the use of risk mapping, and are an output of the Early Detection Response and Surveillance of Avian Influenza in Africa (EDRS-AIA) project, implemented by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in collaboration with African Union Interafrican Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR).

We are calling these the "first generation" risk mapping products; ILRI is currently conducting research to further improve these products. We expect the final Bird Flu Risk Map Report to be available by September 2009. This publication will feature a state-of-the-art atlas of risk maps that have been validated and improved through field work, an experts' workshop, and newly available data.

The publications are targeted to different audiences. The first three products are targeted to a broad audience while the fourth publication is suited for readers with a technical background.

We encourage all readers to first read the User Guide for Initial Bird Flu Risk Maps.
