Our work for a sustainable future continues!
The current crisis points to the need for a One Health trans-disciplinary approach towards solving today's global challenges. The Belgian Biodiversity Platform stays committed to giving scientists a powerful voice for moving beyond current approaches to emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, climate change, and environmental degradation towards a more holistic default way of doing business.
Following precautions set by the Belgian government and the World Health Organisation, our teams are working from home but staying connected digitally.
