Real-time risk Assessment Platform for Evaluating the Risk of African Swine Fever (ASF) Introduction into the United States

The aim of this project is to develop a user-friendly digital platform for the real-time risk assessment of ASF introduction into the US. This platform wlogoould be scalable and could be easily adapted to evaluate other Foreign Animal Diseases (FADS). This platform will allow the gathering, update and integration of different epidemiological data for the near real-time risk assessment of ASF introduction into US through different routes. Specifically, it will provide: i) an updated risk profile (where and when) of ASF risk of introduction into the US, ii) the possibility to set up and send notifications when the risk significantly changed and iii) sensitivity analysis and scenario evaluation tools to quantify the impact of specific scenarios (e.g. the impact of change in policies or trade patterns) on the risk estimates.
