Translating Science into Policy: A Multisectoral Approach to Adaptation and Mitigation of Adverse Effects of Vector-Borne Diseases, Environmental Pollution and Climate Change on Planetary Health

Objective

PLANET4Health provides new knowledge and tools on environment degradation and its impact on human animal and ecosystems health. The project results will support policy making process and citizens awareness on sustainable planetary health, climate and environmental policies and adaptation and mitigation strategies to natural hazards. PLANET4health will develop collaborations from a large variety of organizations from the: environmental and climate science, public health, epidemiology, veterinary medicine, social, political and economic science, engineering, law and ethics, and communication, to produce solid knowledge and tools to facilitate learning and practice on the interaction between the natural system and human health. Four tailor-made case studies will be performed: 1) One Health effects of vector-borne diseases, 2) air pollution, 3) food contamination arising from soil and water contamination, 4) mental wellbeing linked to environmental and climate stressors, in different geographical area thanks to the large project network, that will draw universal conclusions and replicable solutions to improve the predictive capability and preparedness. The consortium will produce research, technological innovation, tailored outreach and training, and policy solutions through a cross-sectorial multidisciplinary scientific collaboration in line with the transnational character of planetary health. For these aims the project will: a) collect, organize and assure open availability of new and already existing data on climate and environmental indicators linked to One Health; b) carry out analyses on data and build innovative, inter-operable and multifunctional digital prototypes; c) produce new knowledge and tools to support One Health policies by applying social science theories and involving citizens, policymakers and stakeholders; d) offer open-access data, tools and research material to public authorities for decision making and academic research for further study.
