The control panel for real-time monitoring of risk factors is an innovative tool that brings together information on various drivers of food crises. Each layer of the map below highlights a different risk factor.

 

The first layer contains the most up-to-date COVID-19 cases. It covers China, the US, Canada, Australia (at province/state level), and the rest of the world (at country level, represented by either the country centroids or their capitals). Data sources are WHO, US CDC, China NHC, ECDC, and DXY. The China data is automatically updating at least once per hour, and non China data is updating manually. This layer is created and maintained by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at the Johns Hopkins University.

The second layer is conflict data from the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED).

The third layer displays the early warning crop monitoring product of the GEOGLAM Initiative at the University of Maryland. It provides a transparent, multi-source assessment of international crop growing conditions, crop status updates, and agro-climatic conditions likely to impact global food production.

The fourth layer covers satellite products related to weather such as NDVI, temperature, rainfall, soil moisture, evapotranspiration, and total runoff from various sources.

The GEOGLAM Initiative is designed to build on existing agricultural monitoring programs at the national, regional, and global levels and to enhance and strengthen these programs through international networking, operationally focused research, and data/method sharing.
