Climate change: Protecting& restoring ecosystems are the key basis of human prosperity, well-being – Economic Times

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to humankind in the 21st century. It has been highlighted that there is an urgent need to investigate further the direct and indirect linkages of climate change with natural, biological and other human-induced hazards….

Understanding the nature of hazards and the interconnected systemic risks is the basis for managing complex and cascading hazards and risks for better prediction, preparation and adaptation. This requires significant advances in the understanding of the role of anthropogenic systems, in recognition of the precursor signals and the associated correlations. The interconnectivity of climate change, biodiversity, environmental pollution, wildlife habitats and human health requires that all of these issues be addressed as a whole, with their multiway interactions.

Protecting and restoring ecosystems, as well as making good use of its finite resources, are the key basis of human prosperity and well-being. Recognising this, the global community must garner a better understanding of the connection between climate change and One Health. In this article, we stress the linkage between climate change and One Health, and propose recommendations for approaches and implementations from the One Health concept to action by taking the climate change into account. We present key messages and recommendations.
