...  Invasive alien species are one of five main drivers of change with large global negative impact on biodiversity and can serve as a source of a new pathogen or vectors of a pathogen that can affect human, plant, and wildlife health. Building on One Health, "One Biosecurity" can be used to frame the strong synergies across plant, animal, human, and environmental health and the urgent need for more integrated treatment of biosecurity threats.

... There had been extensive community engagement in prior informed consent but no credible preexisting Indigenous organization, and the researchers relied on information from the government to organize their prior informed consent process. Because a credible Indigenous organization that could speak to the community participated, the Peru project succeeded, while the Mexico project, which Rosenthal thought was the better of the two (e.g., more rigorous design, deeper community ties, more potentially powerful policy outcomes)

... In addition, investigators could ask themselves if the research team has the time, budget, and local expertise to conduct a successful study and how they will manage the community's expectations for outcomes and follow-up. INVASIVE ALIEN SPECIES AND PUBLIC-ECOSYSTEM HEALTH Presented by Ana Cristina Cardoso, European Commission Joint Research Centre Cardoso defined alien species as living organisms introduced by human activities to places outside their natural range.

... . In Europe, invasive alien species are addressed through the European Invasive Alien Species Regulation, which concerns the prevention and management of the introduction and spread of invasive alien species, said Cardoso.4 Her organization, a directorate of the European Commission, developed EASIN to improve access to alien species data and information in Europe and to facilitate access to updated scientific information and spatial data in fresh water, marine, and terrestrial environments.

... . In this context, hazards would be events such as extreme temperatures and heat waves and extreme rain events and flooding that can disproportionately affect vulnerable populations and marginalized groups that lack social capital.
From page 72...
... . To illustrate how to find a pragmatic approach to tackle these types of challenges, Semenza discussed an urban social intervention designed to attenuate the negative consequences of climate change and climate variability and enhance community capacity and resilience.
From page 73...
... Social intervention, he noted, can create human-scale urban landscapes that benefit social capital and well-being, and urban interventions can increase community resilience to environmental stressors. His key message was that integrating public and ecosystem health systems can foster urban resilience.
From page 74...
... One community engaged effectively and participated in all the readiness activities, while a similar neighboring community did not engage and community outreach efforts failed completely. When a massive downpour occurred in 2014, the prepared community responded quickly to the alerts and community members moved to safety.
