Bridging the science-policy gap for biodiversity and human health: from Science to Practice

Bridging the science-policy gap for biodiversity and human health: from Science to Practice

2016-12-07

The State of Knowledge Review Connecting Global Priorities, Biodiversity and Human Health, co-led by the World Health  and the CBD Secretariat with contributions from numerous partners have demonstrated the ways human health is intimately linked with the health of our planet and ecosystems, and the life supporting services they deliver. This event provides a critical opportunity to explore how to translate these scientific findings into concrete, scalable and coherent policy action across scales of governance in ways that can tangibly contribute to achieving global commitments set out in the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and its Aichi Targets, the Sustainable Development Goals and 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  It is also intended to contribute to discussions arising from the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice considered the implications of the findings of the review at its nineteenth meeting in recommendation XIX/6 on biodiversity and Human Health, under consideration at COP 13. Following presentations by an expert panel on a range of topics at the biodiversity and health nexus, ranging from communicable to noncommunicable diseases as well as the eco-social dimensions of health, participants will also be invited to engage in an open dialogue with panelists on ways forward.
