Around 400 participants from over 100 countries attended this unique international forum. They included representatives from national authorities and the private sector, as well as from international, regional and national organisations.
This Compendium of manuscripts, prepared by speakers of the conference and reviewed by the experts from the Scientific Committee, provides an overview of available knowledge on wildlife, animal health and biodiversity protection and for the first time, collaboration among the animal and public health sectors and users of all natural and protected areas (hunters, fishers, etc.).
The recommendations adopted at the end of the Conference by all the participants are also included. These recommendations will guide future OIE policies on wildlife health and biodiversity.
