...  Setting a research agenda for integrating public and ecosystem health is about both the "what" of the research questions and the "how" of embracing knowledge production practices that generate actionable and decision-ready information delivered to the right audiences. Aileen Lee, from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, noted the intricate, intimate, and inescapable ways the natural world undergirds the life support systems that sustain human health.

... The "how," she added, requires reaching across institutional barriers to pursue innovative knowledge collaborations across silos, disciplines, sectors, and social groups. Today, human society is facing interlinked crises of nature loss, climate change, public health, and social inequity rooted in fundamental choices about how social and economic activities are organized, said Lee.
