The OICSD held a half day joint workshop at Somerville with Oxford-India Health Research Network (OIHRN), and The George Institute for Global Health (TGI), focusing on Environment, Health and India

At this meeting, we brought together researchers interested in exploring potential collaborative, interdisciplinary research opportunities integrating Environment, Health and India. This meeting enabled discussions about participants’ current research and potential opportunities for collectively addressing the intersection of their research areas with health (India focused).

In the backdrop of India ratifying the Paris Agreement on climate change, and the prominence with which the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were discussed during the recent UN General Assembly in New York, we feel that it is timely for us to facilitate the bringing together of those with interests in health, environment, gender issues, food and nutrition, air and water quality, climate change etc., to name a few.

Following this meeting there was a networking reception for India focused researchers and students to highlight their research, interact, network and establish contacts in an informal setting.
