PALE-Blu 1km population layer GPWv4 and WorldPop UN adjusted

This population layer provides baseline GPWv4 population values which are replaced with worldPop data where available.  All values are adjusted to UN population figures where possible.  Please consult the excel file included in this download for more detailed information on the data by country.

This is the recommended 1km baseline population layer for the PLE-Blu project.  It is available to everyone who registes on the PALEBlu website.  See the home page for information on how to do this.


PALE-Blu Horizon2020 Bluetongue project kick-off meeting scheduled for September in Glasgow

The PALE-Blu Kick-off meeting is planned for the 5-6th September.  It will be hosted by our partners at the University of Glasgow.

The meeting will brings together European institutes with expertise in Bluetongue viruses (BTV) research and diagnosis, with partners in endemic regions (Africa, the Middle East and Turkey) that act as a ‘source’ for BTV strains that emerge in Europe.  The partners will be discussing the current state of play and plans for the upcoming three years for the project.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
