Food Security and Aid on Google Maps

Food Security Aid Map

InterAction, with funding from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), has used the Google Maps API to create this Food Security Aid Map. The map provides detailed project-level information on food security and agriculture work being done by non-government organizations.

The map highlights the work of NGO's trying "to help increase food supplies and to improve nutrition in vulnerable populations by increasing production, improving food distribution and market systems, and enhancing the ability of the poor to purchase and use food."

It is possible to search the map by sector, country and organisation. If you click on the returned map markers from a search it is possible to view the details of individual projects.
