Natural disasters, like floods, earthquakes or extreme climate outbreaks, severely challenge the health and welfare of people, animals and the ecosystem. The Conference on the Natural disasters and “One – Health” Are we prepared?, focused on preparedness and management of such crisis.

About 90 participants actively engaged in the discussions recognising that humans, animals and the environment are interlinked and advocating the imperative of considering ‘One Health’ holistic approach as fundamental part of the whole exercise. Civil protection mechanisms should consider human and animal interactions as major factor in order ensure successful response.
