COHAB 2005 - International Conference on Health and Biodiversity

Location: Galway, Ireland.
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2005-08-23    
End Date: 2005-08-25

Event Description:
The importance of biodiversity to sustaining social, political and economic development has been recognised in the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, the UNís WEHAB (Water, Energy, Health, Agriculture and Biodiversity) initiative, and by several national and international initiatives aimed at bridging the gap between economics, [public] health and the environment. By promoting discussion on the links between human health and biodiversity, COHAB 2005 aims to stimulate positive thought, activity and collaboration across a multitude of disciplines. The target audience therefore includes researchers, students and professionals in areas of the biological, environmental, chemical, social and political sciences (including biology, ecology, conservation, biochemistry, medicine, pharmacognosy, microbiology, environmental chemistry, sociology, demography, [public] health, social policy, local government, economics, environmental resource management and risk assessment).
