👉 Discover IDAlert’s 6 hot spots
Six climate-emergence hotspots, with different ecological settings and climate-induced disease threats, have been chosen to evaluate, design and test the IDAlert decision-support tools.

👉 Mapping the needs of stakeholders
A co-creation workshop between national level and local level stakeholders was held where stakeholders’ wishes and unmet needs were mapped to craft the tools and services IDAlert will create during the project’s lifetime.
