Slide: Demographic Data Challenges

Video: Understanding population distributions supports health programmes, census preparation and disaster response

Professor Andy Tatem recently spoke at a virtual event on Geospatial for sustainable agriculture and urban development in Africa organised by The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). In this recording of his presentation, Professor Tatem gives an overview of our work and shares examples of the impact of our collaborations with UN agencies and national statistic offices in Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and highlights our work supporting national census preparation, health programmes and disaster response in low- and middle-incomes countries globally. 

“We're trying to tackle these kinds of situations where data that we trust may be available but at course resolution, or data that exists is outdated or incomplete or inaccurate.”
