    Tim Hirsch questioned
    GBIF is currently prioritizing mobilization of occurrence data relating to vectors, hosts and reservoirs of zoonotic diseases. Even with current gaps, open-access biodiversity data is already used in many studies to evaluate disease spillover risk areas and other research relating to human health and climate change. Does the panel agree that increased biodiversity data sharing is an important component of improved understanding of disease risks and will help to target surveillance programmes?

    There are complex relationships depending on the pathogen. But there are risk mitigation measures that can be taken to ensure coexistence of humans and animals. Good animal production, hygiene practices in processing meat, milk and other products are key, vaccinations for humans and animals, limiting physical interactions between livestock and wildlife in certain seasons where known risks are high for disease transmission, these are some of things that can work

    Yes…..we believe this movement it´s happening through the mosquitoes (vectors) dispersion…and they are really affected by temperature

    Are there relationship as far as zoonotic diseases are concerned for livestock/domestic animals and humans ? Any perspectives in terms of possible infectious patterns? if we know that local populations and even near urban populations use to leave in many cases with animals/domestic in their daily lives; e.g. in West Africa…….

    Question for Doreen and/or Cristina

    Thanks for flagging the role of Indigenous and Local Knowledge going forward. However, does this potentially conflict with Nils & Cristina’s focus on ‘science-based approaches & solutions’? Are we adopting a multiple-evidence base approach to OneHealth?

    Strengthening early warning systems is important-including bringing in multi-sectoral data/information to identify threats. But equal investment has to be in the institutional systems to use that information in a timely manner–and investing in capacity in high risk countries is essential

    From the WHO colleague intervention – One question: How to concretly involve the developing world in Programme such as One Planet/One Health while we all have seen how covid pandemy has been managed by countries in the North by their own – within their own borders/nationally or regionally in terms of resources/vaccines/ even masks sharing, etc…? Did you need to push for a real Shift and change on behavioral and attitude change and more opend, and transparent parnership – Ref SDG-17 on Global Partnership as put forward in the UN 2030 UN agenda?

    How an early warning system can prevent viral disease like covid 19 in an increasingly globalized world?

    What about full involvement of private sector in order to avoid further degradation of biodiversity loss; be it in forestry areas or mining sector or fisheries sector, etc…….Resources are needed in terms of investments in developing countries in particular

    Is there temperature main factor for movement of virus during summer?

    How is possible to mantain support to developing countries, since these countries appart of being rich in biodiversity are also rich in natural sources like oil and minerals. These countries are highly exploited because of their richness, how we can efficiently reduce this explotaition and put more real support?

    Bertha Cecilia Garcia Cienfuegos questioned
    How will it be approached, or how will the articulation to mitigate climate change, control the loss of biodiversity and the collateral effects of COVID 19, to achieve protecting planet and building resilience, especially in the LAC Region

    Dandan Yu questioned
    At the international level, is there an agency to develop a guideline to guide research and decision-making on climate change, biodiversity and public health at the national level?In addition, is there an international scientific program to promote this work?

    From the summary of session two, I think we should pay more attention to fast-growing tree species to provide sustainable sources for energy generation.

    Arthur Hanson, this has been very interesting despite the ungodly hour. Listening to all this rather depressing presentation of general failure in preserving Biodiversity, it really seems the only solution is changing our consumption patterns and fashions worldwide. A real reboot as suggested by the FT.
