Webinar: One Health Approaches for Health Disaster Risk Reduction

October 19, 2017Image result for World Bank One Health Day Blog post

Organizer: EcoHealth Alliance

Scope: International Event 

Fee: None

Open to Public: Yes

Description: Health emergencies are often considered as follow-on consequences of natural or man-made disaster events. However, the health, social and economic consequences of health emergencies including zoonotic disease epidemics (e.g. Ebola in West Africa, SARS) highlight the importance of risk reduction strategies to prevent, prepare for, respond timely and recover swiftly and build back better from these public health crises. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction calls for better understanding of risk, enhanced risk governance that is inclusive and multi-sectoral, better investment in risk reduction for resilience, and enhancing preparedness and recovery. In line with this, integrated approaches such as One Health (or related ones such as EcoHealth and Planetary Health) can help target drivers of health emergencies and biological threats and inform risk management interventions. The webinar brings together health, climate, disaster risk reduction and biodiversity experts working to ensure coherence and synergies at the interface between these communities to explore applications of One Health approaches in risk management from prevention through recovery. The speakers will highlight risk assessment and planning tools, guidelines, and policy frameworks that can support countries and communities in health disaster risk reduction. This webinar is co-sponsored by Future Earth, the International Association for Ecology and Health, and EcoHealth Alliance, and features presenters from the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, and the World Bank Group.
