Maasai Mara National Reserve is a vitally important protected area on the African continent that attracts thousands of visitors annually. It is globally famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards and cheetahs, and the annual migration of zebra, Thomson's gazelle, and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti every year from July to October.
Africa's National Parks, Nature Reserves and Game Reserves are an important and sustainable sources of foreign currency, jobs and upliftment in many countries on the continent.
Please contribute to mapping this protected area for the benefit of tourists and in turn the surrounding communities.

This project directly supports programs under the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), which was launched in 2005 with the goal to reduce malaria-related mortality by 50 percent across sub-Saharan Africa. The OpenStreetMap data created through this task will be used to plan the logistics of an Indoor Residual Spraying campaign in Milange.
Before you begin mapping please review the Malaria Prevention in Mozambique tracing guide. This guide provides pictures and information on features needed to support Malaria prevention efforts in Mozambique.Created by CourtneyMClark - Updated - Priority: low
The Kyrgyz Republic is located in a region of high seismic hazard. In addition, the typical buildings in the region are susceptible to damage from seismic hazards (e.g. earthquake ground shaking). The population in the region is therefore exposed to the combination of high seismic hazards and vulnerable building stock.
This World Bank-supported project aims to collect exposure data on buildings and infrastructure that will be used in a nationwide seismic risk assessment study. The project is held in conjunction with key government agencies and local university departments in Kyrgyz Republic, which will help ground truth the OSM data created through volunteer remote mapping.
TIMELINE: A community mapping event will take place in Bishkek, Kyrgyz Republic, on October 8-9, where local volunteers from universities and government agencies will map assets vulnerable to seismic hazard.
PLEASE DO NOT WORK ON THIS PROJECT YET - STILL UNDER DISCUSSION. THANK YOU!

Hurricane Matthew caused catastrophic damage to western Haiti. This project uses post-event imagery, which shows the dramatic impact on man-made structures and vegetation in the departments of Grand'Anse and Sud.Created by giovand - Updated - Priority: low
For a week, Kinshasa suffered more frequent heavy rains than usual. In many places, drainage is inadequate. Several districts are currently under water, walls crumble, people find themselves without a roof, and a large part of the city is deprived of drinking water and electricity. It is urgent to have accurate mapping of settlements, streets, waterways and land use.Created by clairedelune - Updated - Priority: medium

MSF needs to get a fair statistical representation sample of populations in a specific district of Malawi (Nsanje District).The maps will help MSF team on the field to find access more easily to randomly selected villages and group of houses. MSF is conducting an important study that aims to gather critical information about the real and true percentage of people affected by HIV. We need to know as precisely as possible, within that given population who has been tested for HIV, and who has started treatment, are currently under treatment, and are responding well to it.
This study will help the MSF and Ministry of Health teams in the field better measure the current, joint effort to fight HIV. It will help steer the MSF and Ministry of Health decision making process and should lead to better and more impactful operations.
The Missing Maps project aims to map the most vulnerable places in the world (affected by humanitarian crises: disease epidemics, conflict, natural disasters, poverty, environmental crises). Building on HOT's disaster preparedness projects, the Missing Maps tasks facilitate pre-emptive mapping of priority countries to better facilitate disaster response, medical activities and resource allocation when crises occur.Created by pedrito1414 - Updated - Priority: low

OSM Tasking Manager is a mapping tool designed and built for the Humanitarian OSM Team collaborative mapping. The purpose of the tool is to divide up a mapping job into smaller tasks that can be completed rapidly. It shows which areas need to be mapped and which areas need the mapping validated.
This approach facilitates the distribution of tasks to the various mappers in a context of emergency. It also permits control of the progress and the homogeneity of the work done (e.g. elements to cover, specific tags to use, etc.).
Just jump over to OpenStreetMap, create an account, and then visit the LearnOSM tutorials on the Tasking Manager and the iD editor. Alternatively check out the MapGive website which also provides information on the Tasking Manager and mapping. Once you have read up on how to map, come back here to help map for people on the ground!
