About the Opportunity

Pandemic challenges to environment are varied, complex and interdisciplinary in nature. Increasing development and shrinking habitats of wildlife has resulted in multiple human wildlife conflicts globally. Such conflicts have pernicious outcomes for humans and ecological systems. Past experience has shown us that zoonotic diseases are transmitted to humans via
intermediate wild animals. Developing countries like India are especially vulnerable to such global catastrophes due to high population density, weak health care infrastructure, poverty, illiteracy etc. It has displaced livelihoods, destroyed economies and has put unbearable strain on waste management. In the short term, rapid environmental gains are seen in the form of
reduction of air pollution. However, as the economies will try to revive themselves, GHG emissions will again rise exponentially diminishing any short-term gain.

The present Webinar is an effort to understand the wide-ranging impact of Covid- 19 on human health and environment as well as providing a roadmap for dealing with such issues in the future at the domestic and international level.
