The food, climate and biodiversity ‘triple challenge’ and One Health in the Greater Virunga landscape

The triple challenge is the imperative to simultaneously deliver a stable climate, recovering biodiversity and healthy food for 10 billion people by 2050. Building on discussions at the GLF Bonn in June, this event advances thinking on the concept further, and explores the implications through a deep dive into the case of the Greater Virunga Landscape. In the Virunga landscape this triple challenge looms large, as does the risk of disease transmission between both wildlife and humans, making the One Health approach essential. The discussion will combine speakers from the landscape with external experts and the audience to explore how to negotiate and balance these challenges.
