The FAWRisk-Map incorporates diverse socio-economic and agro-ecological data so that responders can visualise where the underlying risk of household food insecurity due to Fall Armyworm is highest. The tool consists of a number of layers allowing users to disaggregate risk into its constituent parts. By highlighting potential "hotspots", the tool is intended to assist decision-makers in prioritising and preparing for early action in targeted areas.

The tool developed by FAO is part of innovative projects awarded funding by the Government of Belgium.
