ECOnomic development,
ECOsystem MOdifications,
and emerging infectious diseases
Risk Evaluation

The new project ECOMORE 2 is scheduled to start in March 2017;
the lifespan of the project is 3 years.

This second stage of the project ECOMORE will continue to scrutinize the links between the ECOnomic development, and correlated ECOsystem MOdifications, on emerging infectious diseases in order to document a Risk Evaluation but in addition ECOMORE 2 will take into account the effects of climate change as it becomes a strong concern at international and regional level particularly after the COP21.


Flooding accounts for 40% of all natural disasters worldwide and eight of the
10 large countries most at risk are in Asia


In this context, the most significant risks are then represented by waterborne diseases and vector-borne diseases: contamination of waters that are submerged by water contaminated by human and animal, wildlife encroachment wild on human which increases the risk of zoonotic diseases, environmental pathogens spread by runoff water, role of stagnant water after the water recedes for mosquito breeding… Now there is a cascade of interactions as urbanization, deforestation and agricultural intensification, resulting from economic development, amplify the impact of climate deregulations.
