Description

Numerous studies have established a relationship between human interference with nature and transmission of diseases from animals to human. There is therefore growing evidence that the destruction of biodiversity has created the conditions for the spread of new viruses such as Covid-19. Awareness is growing, and new responses are emerging: a new discipline, global health, focuses on the increasingly visible links between the well-being of humans, ecosystems, and other living things. This session will look at crucial issue of nature conservation as well as the investments, and changes in human behavior, in agricultural practices and in the consumption of natural resources required to solve the issue.
