Over the past decade, substantial resources have been spent
on tackling avian infuenza and building a global capacity for a
pandemic response. The catastrophic costs of the 1918 infuenza
pandemic are well documented, and the swine fu pandemic
of 2009-10 has raised the alarm yet again. Across the world,
surveillance systems have been upgraded, stockpiles of antiviral
drugs and infuenza vaccines have been created, veterinary and
public health systems have been improved and poultry production
and marketing has been dramatically restructured. What are the
lessons from this experience? And what does this suggest for the
This book explores how virus genetics, ecology and epidemiology
intersect with economic, political and policy processes in a variety
of places - from Bangkok to Washington, to Jakarta, Cairo, Rome
and London. It focuses on the interaction of the international
and national responses - and in particular the experiences of
Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand. It asks how efective
is the disease surveillance and response system - can it respond
to a new pandemic threat? The comparative analysis reveals the
challenges and limitations of a technocratic, centralised response,
and the need to take seriously local contexts. Drawing from these
experiences, the book concludes with a discussion of future
prospects and challenges, examining in particular what a One
World, One Health approach - where approaches to animal, human
and ecosystem health are integrated - would look like in practice.
Ian Scoones is a Professorial Fellow at the Institute of Development
Studies and co-director of the STEPS Centre. He has worked extensively
on livestock and veterinary institutional and policy issues, particularly
in Africa.

This book lays out a new pathways approach
to address sustainability challenges in todays
dynamic world. Through an appreciation of
dynamics, complexity, uncertainty, difering
narratives and the values-based aims of
sustainability, the pathways approach allows
us to see how some approaches are dominant,
even though they do not produce the desired
results, and how to create successful alternative
pathways of responding to the challenges
we face. Part of the Pathways to Sustainability

This book explores how epidemics shape and are
shaped by changing social, political, ecological
and technological processes at both local and
global levels and, crucially, shows how the
construction and implementation of responses
might become more efective, sustainable and
socially just. It ofers a unique approach focusing
on how diferent scientists, policy-makers and
publics construct narratives about epidemics
and become involved in their governance; how
globalised narratives interact with local and
national settings; and who gains or loses, with
a wide range of cases. Part of the Pathways to
Sustainability Series.
