Agricultural development and vector-borne diseases

Agricultural development and vector-borne diseases cover

The health dimensions of the extensive environmental change we are witnessing in the last decades are complex and probably only matched by the health dimensions of the extensive social change occurring at the same time. In all parts of the world, policy and decision makers are grappling with a transfer from a strictly economics-driven development to true sustainable development.

This slide set aims to help them and future professionals to visualize specific agro-ecotypes, relate them to their local conditions and develop effective preventive solutions to equally specific local health problems
