Role of Geospatial Technologies

April 26 @ 6:00 am - 7:30 am

Urban aquatic ecosystems are extremely relevant connectors between people, animals and plants, making cities more biodiverse and sustainable. Yet, these ecosystems are often confronted with lack of space, cuts of vegetation, artificialization, and other urbanisation processes. This degradation can lead to numerous disservices to humans in regard to emerging pathogens, decreasing disease resistance, climate change impacts and other health concerns in cities.

This Webinar brings together two global experts on the topic of the convergence of aqautic health and human health.

OneAquaHealth aims to improve the sustainability and integrity of freshwater ecosystems in urban environments.  By investigating the interconnection of ecosystem health and human wellbeing, the project will identify early warning indicators and enhance environmental monitoring with AI-assisted tools. As a result, the project will support decision-makers in finding adequate and timely decisions as well as effective measures to restore aquatic ecosystems health and promote OneHealth.

Objectives of OneAquaHealth are:

  • LINKS between the HEALTH OF NATURE and AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS and HUMAN HEALTH.
  • LEVEL OF INTEGRITY of urban aquatic ecosystems for the maintenance of HUMAN HEALTH and wellbeing, ANIMAL and PLANT HEALTH and the MITIGATION of the RISKS OF DISEASES outbreak.
  • Determine ENVIRONMENTAL PARAMETERS for predicting DISEASES OUTBREAK RISKS related to aquatic ecosystem degradation, which may constitute EARLY WARNING INDICATORS.
  • EARTH OBSERVATION DATA to monitoring early warning indicators.
  • TOOL that allows the selection of measures to ACT UPON EARLY WARNINGS.
  • Engage stakeholders for RISKS CONTRIBUTING to an EARLY WARNING SYSTEM.
