Human and environmental health are interdependent, they must be secured together.
Food security and quality of nutrition are important components of health. Sustainable agricultural practices can empower communities to secure their own health and livelihood in the long term without threats of environmental degradation.
Basic healthcare is still unaffordable and inaccessible in several communities in Asia. Combined with new threats of climate change and pollution, provision of healthcare is an urgent necessity and is crucial to securing environmental health.
Ecosystem health and biodiversity conservation can no longer be sidelined as separate from human health. Local-driven conservation projects that support sustainable livelihood in various communities are proving to be key drivers of planetary health.
