The FBLI Synthesis Book
This first booklet of the Field Building Leadership Initiative (FBLI): Advancing Ecohealth in Southeast Asia and China, describes how the FBLI has contributed to developing the field of Ecohealth by drawing on research and practical experiences from Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam) and China. The case studies showed how local communities addressed and learned from challenges in managing agricultural intensification through joint efforts with researchers and other actors. This booklet aims to synthesize and present activities since program launch in October 2011 to 2015. The information in this booklet sets out a base framework for reporting final outcomes of the FBLI in the final synthesis booklet, a more comprehensive booklet expected to be published at the end of 2016. The final synthesis booklet will share more lessons learned and ways to move forward in building the Ecohealth field.
