EDEN Project – Emerging Diseases in a Changing European Environment

January 28, 2009

EDEN Project http://www.eden-fp6project.net/   EDEN (Emerging Diseases in a changing European environment) is an Integrated Project of the European Commission that aims to identify and catalogue those European ecosystems and environmental conditions which can influence the spatial and temporal distribution and dynamics of human pathogenic agents. The project develops and co-coordinates a set of generic methods, tools and skills such as predictive models, early warning and monitoring tools which can be used by decision makers for risk assessment, decision support for intervention and public health policies. EDEN integrates research in 48 leading institutes from 24 countries. The eco-geographical diversity of the project area covers all relevant European eco-systems from the polar circle in the North to the Mediterranean basin and its link with West Africa in the South, and from Portugal in the West to the Danube delta in the East. EDEN is organised into a series of vertical Sub-Projects linked together by a series of Integrative Activities that include biodiversity monitoring, environmental change detection, disease modelling, remote sensing and image interpretation, information and communication.

Conservation Through Public Health

January 23, 2009

Conservation Through Public Health   http://www.ctph.org/node/180  Voice of America reporter Peterson Ssendi in Kampala profiles wildlife veterinarian Dr. Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka, an Ashoka Fellow and the work of her group, “Conservation Through Public Health.” In Uganda, a conservationist is teaching members of poor rural communities that they have more in common with the neighboring wildlife than they think. She says, for example, that disease can be transferred between people and animals. And she says well-kept wildlife sanctuaries can provide an income for the community.
