Biodiversity Conservation to Mitigate the risks of emerging infectious diseases
Biodiversity loss in hotspots of biodiversity is, among other socio-ecological factors, key to
understand, prevent and react to future pandemics. However, despite this knowledge, the current COVID-19 crisis
highlights the limitations of the implementation of One Health approaches. A main limitation is the lack of
context-adapted solutions that stakeholders could easily implement on the field.
To overcome this, BCOMING will build on past international projects to co-construct innovations with all stakeholders of biodiversity hotspots to reduce the risk of infectious disease emergence through biodiversity conservation and disease surveillance strategies.
