The purpose of the side event is to raise awareness, share information and initiate dialogue about the current health security work from a One Health perspective among representatives of Members at FAO, in view of ongoing key global processes such as climate change and the SDG implementation. In doing so, it aims at strengthening the already existing and valuable support of the FAO to the human‐animal‐environment linkage in countries undergoing external evaluations and drawing up national plans for enhanced health security.
