Second Workshop on Animal Health and Climate Change (2016-10-14)

Second Workshop on Animal Health and Climate Change

The second workshop of the MACSUR Tasks 2.1 and 2.2 on animal health and climate change will be held in Ås, Norway on the 14th October 2016.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers working on modelling animal health and climate change impacts to discuss the current work and present the modelling efforts on the impacts of climate change on animal health and the impacts of animal health on greenhouse gas emissions. Two writing sessions are dedicated to work on proposals which will be progressed into papers. A discussion session at the workshop will focus on funding opportunities for the group.

A survey has been prepared to gather an overview of the capabilities of the current models on animal health and climate change. If you are interested to join the workshop and/or the future activities of these tasks, please fill in the attached survey and send it to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please also find attached the draft agenda of the workshop. Registration deadline for the workshop is 7th October 2016.

Results of our research community have recently been published in Environmental Research, highlighting the challenges in modelling animal health and pathogens in the context of climate change.

Please see below a draft agenda and plans for the workshop and some practical details regarding accommodation and transport. Coffee and lunch are provided free of charge through the funding allocated to the organization of workshops and conferences in MACSUR2 by the Norwegian Research Council. However, you need to pay for your own travel and accommodation.
