Emergency Management Research Theme

The Emergency Management research theme focuses on emerging, re-emerging or endemic pathogens and pests in livestock and crops that may require an immediate and comprehensive response for containment that cannot be handled with typical resources.

The theme is rooted in a commitment to "One Health", an integrative research approach that takes place at the intersection between livestock, ecosystem and human health.

The Emergency Management research theme emphasizes evaluating and mitigating the impact of emergencies on Ontario's agricultural sector and related public health through the core components of emergency management: prevention, preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery.
