This report summarises the key findings of a project to develop a series of risk maps demonstrating the current and potential future distribution of dengue in continental Europe, based on current knowledge of global dengue transmission and its mosquito vectors, Ae. Aegypti and Ae. albopictus.
The results show that Europe appears to be at little risk from dengue transmission in comparison with other global locations, even though parts of Europe are potentially climatically suitable as a habitat for Ae. Albopictus.
