Geospatial Technology in Animal Health Delivery

  1. 1. Geospatial Technology in Animal Health Delivery Catherine Pfeifer, spatial analyst Delivery of animal health services in extensive livestock production systems Workshop 8 March 2017
  2. 2. Overview • What does ILRI already do? • Getting the livestock numbers right • Understanding the spatiality of livestock diseases • Towards near real time outbreak predictions • Use of drones in animal health delivery • Opportunities • Challenges
  3. 3. Getting livestock number right Mapping livestock distribution In collaboration with FAO, ULB Spatial allocation model of livestock based on FAO data Can be downloaded here http://www.livestock.geo- wiki.orgSource: Robinson et al. (2014) New products we are working on: • Livestock keeper map (per species) • Poor livestock keeper map • Herd sizes map
  4. 4. Understanding the spatiality of diseases Mapping risk & vulnerability (ex : Rift valley Fever) Exposure Other risk map Avian flu (Robinson et al) East coast fever (ongoing)
  5. 5. Towards near real time outbreak predictions 2 Phd projects with Wageningen University in Laikipia Virtual environmental observatories Crowd sourcing for tick observations with mobile phone Temporal risk map for East Coast Fever Other spatial data Near real-time satellite derived data
  6. 6. Overview • What does ILRI already do? • Getting the livestock numbers right • Understanding the spatiality of livestock diseases • Towards near real time outbreak predictions • Use of drones in animal health delivery • Opportunities • Challenges
  7. 7. What will drones change in animal health delivery? Getting validation points on the ground  improved livestock count Understanding wildlife livestock interaction Understanding livestock movement => Improved spatio-temporal disease risk modeling Quick delivery of vaccines to non- accessible area Assessing animal health with thermal images
  8. 8. What are the challenges with drones? Differentiating livestock and wildlife? Count the livestock? What area can we cover? How to account for livestock movement?

Getting more accurate livestock estimates 2. Understanding disease spatio-temporal risk better 3. Supporting early warning systems
