Generating a more holistic understanding of the risks of pandemics
Keynote Webinar with Dr. Ivette Perfecto
On Friday, April 9th from 9:00 a.m. to 9:40 a.m. PST, join Dr. Ivette Perfecto as she discusses the importance of integrating ecological, social, and political factors for generating a more holistic understanding of the risks of pandemics.
This will be framed in the context of the Pandemic Research for the People, a working group of the Agroecology and Rural Economics Research Corps. This working group consists of academics, farmers, activists, who collectively take action to develop a critical analysis as well as agroecological alternatives to achieve healthy landscapes for the environment and for the people.
Hosted by Diversified Agroecosystem Research Cluster and the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems
The Diversified Agroecosystem Research Cluster is developing novel approaches to assess linked social and ecological outcomes of diversified agroecosystems. Uniquely positioned as a research excellence cluster based at the University of British Columbia’s Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, cluster team members use ecological, social, economic and systems analysis perspectives to improve soil and water quality, minimize nutrient losses, protect biodiversity, and support climate resilience and food sovereignty.
