This task covers the core of Can Tho city and its surrounding suburbs. The Government of Vietnam and the World Bank are partnering to increase the city and province's resilience to flooding. Floods regularly affect the Mekong River Delta and Can Tho is one of the most populous cities in this already densely populated area.
This task is the first step towards creating a complete map of the province in OpenStreetMap. Map roads, landmarks and clearly visible buildings. Leave anything that's obscure or unclear!
This task will map all the roads, buildings and major landmarks.Created by Rbanick - Updated - Priority: low

The Netherlands Red Cross is supporting Croix Rouge Benin to decrease the number of children under 5 suffering from waterborne and oro-fecal diseases in the boroughs of Kessounou and Zoungamé in Ouémé, Benin. One of the activities to achieve this is to perform field assessments that identify vulnerable people. Detailed maps of the project area are vital to properly undertake the assessment.
The Netherlands Red Cross will also start investing in a local OSM / HOT community in Benin and is seeking opportunities to provide the necessary training and resources where needed.
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 Maarten van der Veen - Updated - Priority: low

The Bed Net Surveillance Program is a Peace Corps Madagascar initiative. The goal of the program is to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality in participating communities by encouraging community members to regularly use mosquito nets. The Bed Net Surveillance Program will monitor LLIN (Long Lasting Insecticide-treated Nets) usage through the help of GIS (Geographic Information System) based technologies. Community leaders will focus sensitization efforts on households that do not routinely sleep under mosquito nets in order to achieve high bednet coverage rates.Created by CourtneyMClark - Updated - Priority: low
Every year in the Americas more and more people are living in conditions of vulnerability to natural hazards and climate change. To help reduce disaster risk and enhance community resilience in the region, the American Red Cross is working with Red Cross partners in the Bahamas, Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guyana, Honduras, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Panama and Peru to address local hazards and vulnerabilities in dozens of disaster-prone communities.Created by Giblet - Updated - Priority: low
The southern African Kingdom of Swaziland is leading the way in the global fight against malaria and is on the verge of making history by eliminating malaria from its borders by the end of 2016 according to the Kingdom of Swaziland National Malaria Control Programme. If the country achieves malaria elimination, it will be the first country in southern Africa to achieve zero local cases.
Please be a part of this amazing effort at eliminating malaria in Swaziland in 2016 and map in some buildings!
Great for new mappers - Buildings only - Very easy but important mapping

The American Red Cross is partnering with the Vietnam Red Cross to increase the resilience and capacities of 24 disaster prone communes in Quang Nam and Quang Ngai provinces. The project will see to address the particular needs and capacities of vulnerable groups, including women, children, disabled people, the elderly, and those who reside in the most disaster-prone areas.Created by Giblet - 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!
