Raising Awareness among the World's Leaders
As the world continues to reel from the harmful impacts of COVID-19, it is imperative that our leaders urgently find ways to prevent new devastating zoonotic outbreaks. In 2021, the Vatican COVID-19 Commission, EndPandemics and United for Regeneration convened a roundtable to discuss specific recommendations that G20 Leaders could take up at their summit in Rome in October 2021. These recommendations focused on 1) Preventing Risk of Pandemics from the Trade in Wild Animals; 2) Preventing Risk of Pandemics Caused by Destructive Land Use Practices; and 3) Establishing Planetary Health Defense Funding Mechanism.
