Emerging Disease, Wildlife Trade and Consumption: The Need for Robust Global Governance
Exploring Ways to Prevent Future Pandemics
For more than a year, the world has grappled with a pandemic that has infected more than 100 million and now killed more than 2.5 million people. The root causes of pandemics lie at the intersection of people and nature, and it is essential that we address humanity’s broken relationship with the natural world.
Our virtual event from Tuesday, February 23, 2021: "Emerging Disease, Wildlife Trade and Consumption: The Need for Robust Global Governance" explored ways to prevent future pandemics and brought together leading experts in public health and conservation to discuss how to tackle these complex challenges. A recording of the event is available below and has been edited for technical issues/language.
