Achieving global malaria eradication in changing landscapes

The impacts of land use and land cover changes (LULCC) on malaria transmission are highly complex and context specific; environmental and demographic changes within a specific setting may lead to increases or decreases in malaria risks. Impacts may vary over space and time due to interactions between the environment and intrinsic factors such as species composition and ecology, demographic changes influencing socioeconomic status, risk behaviours and access to control measures.
