Meeting Summary: The IDRAM Initiative: Extractive Industries Infectious Disease Risk Assessment and Management
pdf | 187.28 KB


Activities around extractive industry operations in disease hotspots frequently bring humans and animals into closer contact. This can potentially modify virus transmission patterns at the human-animal interface. There is currently no established framework for evidence-based risk assessment and risk management of outbreaks with pandemic potential related to human activities in global hotspots.

This event will facilitate interaction between the extractive industry and international development and finance institutions, national government stakeholders and science leaders to address this challenge. 

Attendance is by invitation only.  

The event will be held under Chatham House Rule.
