Aiming at generating innovative solutions to mitigate global health challenges through working along the continuum from innovation to application harmonically leads to a transdisciplinary understanding of, and practice for, health and social development. The One Health approach is presented as a case study where a transdisciplinary concept and approach is validated in different social, cultural and ecological settings, and is subsequently put into public health practice leading to a measurable impact for human and animal health and well-being of the communities concerned.

More about this publication?
  • GAIA is a peer-reviewed inter- and transdisciplinary journal for scientists and other interested parties concerned with the causes and analyses of environmental and sustainability problems and their solutions.

    Environmental problems cannot be solved by one academic discipline. The complex natures of these problems require cooperation across disciplinary boundaries. Since 1991, GAIA has offered a well-balanced and practice-oriented forum for transdisciplinary research. GAIA offers first-hand information on state of the art environmental research and on current solutions to environmental problems. Well-known editors, advisors, and authors work to ensure the high quality of the contributions found in GAIA and a unique transdisciplinary dialogue – in a comprehensible style.

    GAIA is an ISI-journal, listed in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences.

    All contributions undergo a double-blind peer review.
