Abstract: Nearly two decades after the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (the Rio Summit), the world still needs to alleviate poverty and improve human lives through more equitable access and use of resources and healthier environments. Understanding that human health depends on ecosystems, researchers are cutting a new path toward a more sustainable future. An ecosystem approach to health, integrating research and practice from such fields as environmental management, public health, biodiversity, and economic development, is based on an understanding that people are part of complex socio-ecological systems. Featuring case studies from around the world, Ecohealth Research in Practice demonstrates innovative practices in agriculture, natural resource management, community building, and disease prevention, reflecting the state of the art in research, application, and policymaking in the field. The book demonstrates how ecohealth research works and how it has led to lasting changes for the betterment of peoples’ lives and the ecosystems that support them.
