★Invited Papers

*Hiroya Yamano1 (1.National Institute for Environmental Studies)

Keywords:post CODIV-19, society living in harmony with nature, One Health, novel emerging infectious disease, biodiversity conservation, regional circular and ecological sphere

I present two perspectives after overcoming COVID-19 in terms of establishing the society in harmony with nature. The first includes the holistic "One Health" approach to achieve healthy environment, animal and human, through biodiversity conservation and management. The second includes to establish "regional circular and ecological sphere" to make sustainable use of regional resources such as natural capital and ecosystem services. As the transformative change (e.g., remote work and shrinking transport) is progressing rapidly, now may be the time to plan to incorporate these perspectives into social/economic recovery in the post COVID-19 society.
