To analyze the local impacts of global changes on rodent-borne diseases in relation to biodiversity modification and environmental changes.
The objectives of BiodivHealthSEAare to analyze (1) the local impacts of global changes on rodent-borne diseases in relation to biodiversity modification and environmental changes, and (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.
For this, we will analysis (or re-analysis) and cross correlate various data at the regional and national levels to determine the socio-environmental determinants (climate change, biodiversity loss, forest cover), of endemics and epidemic infectious diseases. The investigation of international initiatives and national policies in the domains of health, climate regulation, and biodiversity conservation will give a third originality by assessing the roles of institutional actors and the coordination (or the lack of) between sectors (e.g. health and conservation sectors are establishing a partnership through the One Health).
Analyses of three local situations by a multi-disciplinary team (social scientists, environmental scientists, ecologists and epidemiologists) will provide original data on biodiversity, rodent-borne diseases, land uses, local practices, health surveillance and perception of biodiversity/health/environment interdependence.
Integrationand dissemination of results will be done in the frame of a companion modeling approach in local and regional workshops attended by various stakeholders: ONGs, International organizations, National institutions, local communities and scientists.
