This event will open the discussion on the current scope of research in this area, considering where there are gaps in current research, what data and capacity building is needed, and opportunities for interdisciplinary and international research. The speakers and a discussant panel will broaden the debate to include members of the audience to consider the key issues and the potential for impact beyond the research community, opportunities for co-funding and collaborating with other partners in this area.
