Threats to animal, human, plant and environment health, many of which occur at the interface of these health domains, will be addressed by looking at food systems and ecosystems through the integrated approach of One Health (OH). The operational capacities of a wide array of public and private OH stakeholders will be strengthened in the design and implementation of state-of-the-art research and innovation (R&I) activities and OH policies. Combined with a social-ecological system (SES) framework that will explicitly link health and ecosystem management with resilience, the adaptive capacity of the actors within SES will be strengthened to prevent and cope with emerging health and environmental risks.
