Reshaping the management of animal and plant disease http://www.relulostintranslation.co.uk/lit-news/reshaping-the-management-of-animal-and-plant-disease http://www.relulostintranslation.co.uk/lit-news/reshaping-the-management-of-animal-and-plant-disease#comments Wed, 05 Oct 2011 08:54:48 +0000 http://www.relulostintranslation.co.uk/?p=148 Shouldn’t policymakers be looking at the fundamentals in animal and plant disease, learning lessons and exchanging information across both of these fields and involving stakeholders at every stage?

That has always been the Relu approach and you can read about some of the outcomes in “Growing Concerns: animal and plant disease policy for the 21st century” which takes a fresh look at the problem in the light of research from across the programme.

The extra year will mainly be devoted to further communications work, promoting findings from the research to a wide audience of policymakers and practitioners across the UK and feeding Relu’s experience into new research programmes.

Relu’s series of policy and practice notes and briefing papers have been widely welcomed by researchers and stakeholders and the Director’s Office will be building on these as well as developing new communications channels.

The announcement was made on 19 July as part of the government’s Bovine TB  Eradication Programme for England.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs estimates that 25,000 bovine TB-infected cattle were slaughtered in England in last year at a national  cost of £90 million.

Animal diseases are a major global environmental,
social and economic policy issue with potentially devastating consequences
for those communities affected during and after outbreaks.

The “Lost in Translation” project uniquely brings together expertise across the natural and
social sciences to provide an interdisciplinary understanding of the social,
technological and natural dynamics of animal disease management across a
range of policy scales. Central to this Relu-funded project is the question
of how we can better understand issues of complexity and uncertainty in
animal disease outbreaks and their containment in order to help develop more
integrated and more effective strategies of management for animal disease. To
focus our analysis and provide a novel cross-disease approach, we have
examined three contrasting examples of endemic and/or exotic disease: Foot
and Mouth Disease, Cryptosporidium and Avian Influenza.
Our aim with this meeting is to present our research
findings and recommendations to a wide audience across policy and practice.
In addition, we’re welcoming keynote contributions from Martyn Jeggo
(Australian Animal Health Laboratory), Katinka de Balogh (Food and
Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations) and Andrew Stirling
(University of Sussex) that will give valuable multidimensional and
international input across our programme for the day.
The conference is free to attend with support from
the Relu-funded Lost in Translation Project.

Debates on hot topics such as “21st Century Land Ownership: a responsibility or a privilege”, and workshop discussions on issues such as “Environmental modelling: master or servant” will run alongside a variety of interactive activities.  You will also be able to take part in voting for The Relu Awards.  Delegates will view films of the project teams and their research, then vote to decide the overall winners in both categories.   

Finalists are:

Best Example of Interdisciplinary Methodology and Scientific Innovation:

Understanding Environmental Knowledge Controversies: The Case of Flood Risk Management

Catchment Management for Protection of Water Resources  A Participatory Modelling Framework to Support Catchment Management

Best Example of Impact:

Comparative assessment of environmental, community & nutritional impacts of consuming fruit and vegetables produced locally and overseas

Sustainable Uplands: learning to manage future change


All the excellent entries from across the Programme will be featured in two Relu briefing papers, to be launched at the conference.
