Description

The Covid-19 crisis is a reminder of the relationship between health and the environment. The Ministerial Meeting of the Alliance for Multilateralism will launch the “One Health” High Level Expert Council. This Council will aim to gather and disseminate reliable information on the links between human, animal, and environmental health in a context of biodiversity erosion.
The meeting will also be an opportunity to present the report of the Infodemics Working Group of the Forum on Information and Democracy and to reassert the right to reliable information.
