Risk mapping and forecasting
A sequence of three participatory workshops for the relevant communities and stakeholders in Guinea and Cambodia will include the co-development of an agent-based model, the co-construction of scenarios, and the deliberation of impacts of each intervention strategy on multiple indicators to facilitate a systems thinking-focused learning process.
The use of agent-based models (ABMs) will enable testing across diverse scenarios and improve understanding of stakeholders on effective One Health system solutions, sustainable farming and forestry practices supporting biodiversity.
The development of guidelines and best practices to mitigate habitat fragmentation and biodiversity loss leading helps reduce the risk of disease emergence and transmission, while having better ecosystem services result in significant economic savings.
Co-constructed surveillance systems will be validated in all sites, resulting in replicable collaborative surveillance strategies, mechanisms, and tools that avoid zoonotic disease emergence.
Policy recommendations and joint policy actions will help to boost sustainability by building upon proposed biodiversity conservation strategies, while supporting the Global biodiversity agenda and the One Health approach.
