UCI Blum Center Director Richard Matthew published a new research note on how climate change is displacing humans and other species in ways that increase the risk for emerging infectious disease.

As climate change displaces humans and other animals into peri-urban areas, greater contact between species increases the risk of zoonotic disease transfer. This new research note illustrates these causal loops based on field work in Malawi.

Read the research to explore how the conservation community can work with urban planners to address the need for improved emerging infectious disease risk management.
