Health & Biodiversity
With the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, unprecedented challenges and an enormous threat to public health have become prevalent. The pandemic has heightened the relevance and priority of bringing knowledge and expertise to the public discourse on how infectious diseases of zoonotic origin can be prevented through taking better care of nature.
CEEweb’s 'Health and Biodiversity' work area focuses on activities related to the interlinkages between zoonotic diseases and the state of biodiversity. Potential and advocated solutions for the prevention of future pandemics include better nature protection, halting deforestation, better regulation of wildlife trade, and better conditions in factory farming.
