It aims to promote new forms of interdisciplinary and intersectoral actions/training:
a) Publication of an Outlook report “Zoonoses in changing environments in Southeast Asian countries” in partnership with FAO, complemented by country focuses.
b) Setting up a collaborative web platform for research, data (with guides on management and interoperability), knowledge representation and scenarios, in the One Health field.
This platform will be both a :
– Technical, allowing to host environmental data (climate, land use, etc.) and biodiversity data (reservoirs, microbes, etc.),
– Research, enabling the human health and animal health sectors to contextualise the transmission or emergence of zoonoses,
– Representation of knowledge and teaching for the various audiences targeted by the project. This platform will be integrated into a national or international structure (such as a laboratory or an international joint research unit on environmental change and health in South-East Asia).
c) Setting up summer schools and MOOCs for :
– New generations of students, with training focused on the analysis and understanding of environmental data and human and animal health, and on the development of behavioural skills (relational, situational and emotional skills);
– Professionals, technical managers and territorial managers in field situations using participatory methods.
These trainings, summer schools and MOOCs will be co-constructed with GREASE, SEAOHUN, NIDA, ACB, MBDS and the technical support of MUSE.
This training will provide the necessary foundations for conducting interdisciplinary One Health projects or projects at the biodiversity/health/society/environment interface.
