The COVID-19 pandemic highlights the power zoonoses have to disrupt our economies, public health and food systems. In response to this, One Health has grown as an approach for addressing the current inadequacies in responses to such global health crises, as well as playing an important role in addressing and mitigating climate change and biodiversity loss. This panel will highlight why those promoting a landscape approach should pay greater attention to landscape health and its relationship with animal (livestock and wildlife) and human health, as part of an integrated One Health approach. If landscape policies and investments continue to be made without taking into account a One Health lens, they will miss opportunities to contribute to addressing the biggest challenges of our time.
