Humanitarian Water Lab

Humanitarian Water Lab

The Humanitarian Water Lab find ways to get safe, healthy water to vulnerable people in humanitarian crises and resource-constrained settings around the world. We work with people affected by crises and frontline responders to identify critical gaps in knowledge and practice wherever water intersects with human health. We bring together people with the right kinds of expertise and experience to catalyze transdisciplinary research; design, test, and refine solutions, and translate research to change real-world practice, all with the aim of helping to […]

Evaluating the Governance of Emergent Pandemic Zoonoses: A systems and legal analysis of wildlife markets

Evaluating the Governance of Emergent Pandemic Zoonoses: A systems and legal analysis of wildlife markets

Actionable evidence focused on the regulation of wildlife trade, from which SARS and SARS-CoV-2 are believed to have emerged, is critical to prevent future pandemics. Connecting social, legal, and cultural dynamics that affect the regulation of wildlife trade in countries where zoonotic epidemics (Ebola) and pandemics (SARS and SARS-CoV-2) have emerged is needed.  The purpose of […]
