Our Work Packages
Our work packages will enable us to study processes in Kenya and Sierra Leone together. This will provide insights into the shared global assemblages in which the two countries are enmeshed, so that we can explore how interventions in the field of animal health and livelihoods are shaped by wider, global relations, ideas and processes. The global comparison will be further augmented by a case study which will study how global relations are enacted through the delivery of One Health projects, and explore how developmental ideas and interventions move between the global North and South (and vice versa).
The comparative framework of this project is designed to draw out what these sites share and to learn from their differences and points of incommensurability.
Livelihoods and Development
Livelihoods and Development centres around case studies on two important forms of animal-based livelihood strategy, farming (Kenya) and hunting (Sierra Leone).
Health and Diseases
Health and Diseases explores human-animal health in Africa through case studies on livestock diseases (Kenya) and Viral Haemorrhagic Fevers (Sierra Leone)
Global Relations: Multi-Species HUBS
Global Relations: Multi-Species HUBS features a case study involving fieldwork with policy makers and scientists in Switzerland, where there are world-leading centres for research and interventions at the human-animal-environmental interface.
