Winners Announced for the Department of State/GLOBE IVSS Mosquito-related Projects Drawing
On Earth Day, in conjunction with the GLOBE IVSS drawing, the GLOBE Implementation Office (GIO) announced the six drawing winners selected from among the mosquito-related projects. There were 32 eligible projects (projects were included if they used the mosquito protocol in their research).
The winners were hand-selected by a team within GIO, based on a number of criteria, including how well the report was written, the amount of community interactions, and which mosquito species and related diseases were studied.
The winning Department of State Mosquito-Related IVSS projects were:
- Africa: Benin: “Analyse Quantitative des Données de Mosquito Habitat Mapper en Afrique de L’oust” AND Nigeria: “The Spread of Biodiversity of Mosquitoes in Spussa Community, Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria”
- Asia and Pacific: Philippines: “Mosquito Breeding Site Characterization of Barangay Igang, Pototan, Philippines AND Thailand: “Mosquito Larvae Diversity and Abundance Relation to Land Cover in Coastal Area in Trang Province”
- Latin America and Caribbean: Brazil: “Does the presence of reconstruction waste at school increase the incidence of mosquito larvae in capture traps?” AND Peru: “Alerta! Riesgo por Mosquitos en al Campus de la Universidad Nacional Agrarian la Molina, Peru”
Congratulations to all of the drawing winners!
