A common work on the link between health and environment is conducted in Southeast Asia, hotspot of emerging infectious diseases with potential pandemic risk and hotspot of biodiversity at threat. This study aims to analyze the local impacts of global changes on zoonotic diseases linked with biodiversity and local perceptions of environmental and biodiversity changes. This multidisciplinary work produces various data and intends to develop integrative approaches to favour the dialogue between disciplines and co-build the analysis tools of an issue in a specific context. Thus the common object of study of both the ecologist and the jurist is about and the impacts of global changes on human health at the regional level but also on distinct areas or landscapes at a country, province or village level. From our fieldwork, we analyze the way we combine various scientific knowledge, the choices we made and the limits of the study.
