Abstract One Health and the Ocean
The link between ocean and health in general and marine biodiversity and health, in particular, is interesting through the One Health approach as it shows the interlinkages between human, wildlife, and ecosystem health. Such an approach has been considered appropriate when it comes to the world’s ocean, playing a critical role for the various processes that sustain life on Earth (Showstack, 2003; Wilcox and Aguirre, 2004).
The One Health approach of the Ocean is developed under different projects studying the continuum between the coastal marine areas to the deep sea (presentation Lajaunie in 2018 at the Ocean Roundtable on the ‘Ocean's Contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals’). The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) aims at the development of good science to ensure the conservation of the ocean, the sustainability of its uses and the protection of ocean health. While there is a need to connect the One Health approach to the ocean-climate nexus, this session will present the context in which the ongoing science can contribute together to the SDGs through the One Health approach. It will illustrate using multidisciplinary research how the One Health approach can be implemented to favor the protection of the ocean and its biodiversity. It will explore the link between coastal cities and the ocean, the contribution of regional and national policies to an integrated management to protect the health of the ocean. It will notably show the links between the implementation of One health and Ocean transportation, the discoveries of new antibiotics in the deep sea or the microplastics in the ocean and their effect on health ( at the human-animal-environment interface)..
