One Health Field work
This new website seeks to curate the growing portfolio of our work to address One health (food, water, health and environmental security) with fragile and conflict-affected states.
Food Security is an all-encompassing One Health issue. It underpins human health through human nutrition, animal health through animal agricultural practices and planetary health through the impacts that food production has on the environment and civil society. Food security in fragile and conflict-affected states (FCAS) is especially precarious and risk-sensitive.
Dr Clara Calia, a Lecturer in Clinical Psychology in the School, is part of the One Health FIELD Network which launched in 2019. It aims to bring together diverse, multidisciplinary expertise to increase food system resilience and support both short and long-term sustainable development in fragile and complex contexts.
As well as recognising the importance of transdisciplinary work, the Network aims to build on past and current local experiences of food security, to help build a sustainable food future that is specific to the affected region.
