GLF Biodiversity Digital Conference: One World – One Health

October 28 – 29, 2020

Human transformation of Earth’s landscapes is driving biodiversity loss, climate change and the emergence of pandemics such as COVID-19, which is a stark reminder of the links between human, animal and environmental health. As the world prepares to ‘build back better’, new approaches are coming to the fore as a way of balancing competing land use demands, conserving the biodiversity and restoring planetary, and human, health.
