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.

BiodivHealthSEA = Local impacts and perceptions of global changes: Health, biodiversity and zoonoses in Southeast Asia.
Southeast Asia is a hotspot of infectious emerging diseases of potential global pandemics and, also, a hotspot of biodiversity particularly at threat due to land use and climate changes.
Southeast Asia attracts the attention of international organizations, developmental agencies and non-governmental conservationist organizations for its global concerns in terms of biodiversity and health.
Southeast Asia is a model to investigate locally the perception and effects of global changes and global governance on the interaction between biodiversity and health.
The project BiodivHealthSEA is funded by the French ANR CP&ES
