One Health Approach

Part of the CGIAR International Year of Plant Health Webinar Series


Webinar 4 brings together scientists working at the intersections of environmental, human, and animal health. In this session, the experts will examine plant health and agriculture from a “One Health” approach—a collaborative, multisectoral, and transdisciplinary perspective that recognizes the health of people, animals, plants and their environments as all closely connected. In this approach, agricultural practices and plant health outcomes are both determined by, and contribute to, ecological, animal, and human health. Learn more about the webinar series.

About the webinar series

The UN has designated 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). CGIAR’s IYPH 2020 events comprise a series of four webinars of global scope targeting scientists and researchers working in relevant fields. Each webinar will take an in-depth look at a different aspect of the crop supply chain, identifying areas for further research and opportunities to take current scientific innovations to scale, with the aim of boosting the long-term health of plants and the environment in low- and middle-income countries.
