EcoHealth Alliance announces new award from USAID to combat disease emergence and climate change
Date:9/23/2013

we will develop solutions that have real traction to reduce carbon emissions, promote a healthier planet, and prevent extinction, while at the same time building sustainable economic growth," commented, Dr. Peter Daszak, President of EcoHealth Alliance, and Chief-of-Party for the IDEEAL program.

The project will launch a Sabah-based Center for Development and Health, serving as a clearinghouse for multi-disciplinary applied research, training, and advocacy. The center will serve a key function in building alliances and engaging industry in designing solutions to these common challenges by hosting regular roundtables that convene stakeholders from across the Malaysian government, civil society, and the private sector. "There is increasing evidence that intact ecosystems are better able to reduce risk of infectious disease spillover events, a function that's an important component of ecosystem services," said Datuk Dr. Laurentius Ambu, Director of the Sabah Wildlife Department. "By placing economic value on this ecosystem service, the project will help strengthen appreciation for maintaining healthy ecosystems, reducing infectious disease spillover events, and will provide the tools needed to guide sustainable land use policies."
