University of Health Sciences, Phnom Penh, Cambodia 17th-18th November 2014
The symposium was supported by Fondation Mérieux, AFD-CNRS, CIRAD and IRD, and aimed to provide a platform for the sharing of scientific and technical expertise linking biodiversity and health concerns, allowing stakeholders to prioritise research on issues that link biodiversity and human health: emerging diseases and biodiversity loss, antimicrobial drug resistance, insecticide resistance, ethnobotanic and plant biodiversity, contaminants in the food web, ecosystem services and health, and the ‘One Health’ concept.
Topics of the symposium:
1. Biodiversity and infectious diseases
2. Antimicrobial drug resistance and other emerging types of resistance
3. Pollutants, herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals and trophic web
4. Ecosystem services, conservation and health
5. “One Health”, laws and ethics for biodiversity and health

A workshop in Singapore 2013
The overall objective of the workshop aimed to investigate and share information on the diversity of zoonotic pathogens and parasites that reside and can inflict public health hazards on human populations in the SEA environments. Thus, it aimed to create a research network within SEA so as to provide opportunities to share tools and concepts for pathogen identification (barcoding), sample collection and preservation (biobanking), data collection (ebanking), and different aspects of health ecology (ecohealth).
This workshop in Singapore was held on the 6th and 7th August 2013. Participants invited from SEA giva short presentations in their own disciplines (medicine, veterinary, epidemiology, ecology, law, ethics and wildlife management).

The project aims at investigating the local impacts of global changes on zoonotic diseases
The project aims at investigating the local impacts of global changes on zoonotic diseases (60% of emerging diseases), focusing on rodent-borne diseases, in relation to biodiversity changes. The local perception of biodiversity changes and their links to health is analyzed through the global governance, the national public policies and the actions of NGOs in the sectoral domains of health, environment, conservation and development (i.e. the “One Health” approach).
The objectives of BiodivHealthSEA are to analyze:
(1) the local impacts of global changes on zoonotic diseases in relation to biodiversity modification and environmental changes
(2) the local perceptions of global environmental and biodiversity changes in connection with the “global governance architecture” and national public policies and actions of NGOs in the sectoral domains of health, conservation biology and land planning.
