How Effective Biodiversity Conservation can Help Prevent Future Pandemics

Position paper | January 13, 2022
Related area of expertise: Health & Biodiversity

To prevent and strengthen resilience to possible future diseases and pandemics, a new conceptual framework for policies and practise is needed. Fragmented policies and institutions have led to ignorance regarding how humans share an ecosystem, even on the microbial level, with other living beings. CEEweb for Biodiversity believes that we need a synergistic approach for biodiversity conservation and public health to co-design and implement programmes, policies, legislation and research across sectors and scientific disciplines in a framework that treats humans and nature not as separate realms, but in view of their interdependencies. To maintain a safe operating space for humanity, we need to give nature the space that it needs. It is time for a new approach to link human and ecological health recognizing the intricate connections between the two.
