Hosted with IUCN Member, EcoHealth Alliance

We are delighted to invite you to a very special event format. Together with Hongying Li and Nghiem Trang from EcoHealth Alliance we will offer you an interactive workshop for even more in-depth dialogue and joint brainstorming to develop approaches to integrate social and behavioural science into zoonotic risk mitigation.

People in either conservation or zoonotic disease areas have been talking about integrating behavioural and social science in the research and implementation, but it has not been very well operationalised in terms of incorporating the methodology, learning experience from relevant implementors, or actual piloting. With an interdisciplinary group of members and a focus on both health risks and wildlife trade, the Alliance provides a platform to exchange knowledge and discuss the ways to put this into action in the connected areas.

What can you expect?

  • An update of the funded project work in Southeast Asia regarding risk mitigation in wildlife farming and bat guano collection practices.
  • Live Q&A and survey with the audience.
  • Brainstorm among Alliance members to identify a) specific human-wildlife interfaces and b) potential behavior change strategies for health risk mitigation.
  • Identify feasible and prioritised behavioural change strategies that can be piloted.

About the Alliance
The International Alliance against Health Risks in Wildlife Trade serves as an inclusive and interdisciplinary platform to discuss challenges and formulate solutions vis-á-vis human-wildlife interfaces and associated health risks and the emergence and spread of zoonotic pathogens from wildlife. The Alliance is aiming to enhance international and national awareness, knowledge, policies and action, not least by narrowing the gap between science and implementation.
