The nexus between people, animals and wellbeing has a significant impact on the health and wellbeing of people. However, the crosscutting nature of this nexus and its impacts is yet to be expressly realised in the existing global and regional governance frameworks. Indeed, in this regard, as far as Africa is concerned, undertakings pertaining to the elements (people, animal and ecosystems) of the referred to nexus are individually inferred from instruments such as the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) and the Revised African Convention on the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (R-ACCNNR), with such inferences permeating to sub-regional governance frameworks.
Desiring to foster greater policy uptake on the cross-cutting nature of this theme, the Climate, Land, Agriculture and Biodiversity (CLAB)-Africa Project provides a platform where African scientific community can advance practical and effective solutions that are tailor made for the peculiar African context.
The webinar on People-Animals-Ecosystem, Health and Wellbeing will focus on recommendations for improving human health through interventions in ecosystems and animal health.
