Strategies for adopting EcoHealth theory and practice: Lessons from action-research on zoonotic diseases in Southeast Asia

  1. 1. Strategies for adopting EcoHealth theory and practice: Lessons from action-research on zoonotic diseases in Southeast Asia EcoHealth Conference, Kunming China 2012 Assé, R., Tohtubtiang K., Gilbert, J., & Grace, D.
  2. 2. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 1 Presentation I. Process & Goals of EcoHealth Uptake Assessment Overview II. Analytical Framework III. Description of 5 Key Adoption Factors & Dynamics a. Knowledge Exchange & Decision Making b. Use of Social Science c. Research Project Management d. Management of Organizational Culture e. Management of Expectations IV. Conclusion
  3. 3. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 2 EcoHealth Uptake Assessment process • formative & participatory - 8 EcoHealth teams - EcoZD - zoonotic emerging infectious diseases - ZEIDs - 6 countries • aligned with Outcome Mapping process • interviews, focus group discussions, review of outputs • 12 month period
  4. 4. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 3EcoHealth Uptake Assessment goals • understand how/why research teams adopt & practice specific EcoHealth principles • understand & identify best-bet practices • contribute to constructing model EcoHealth action-research
  5. 5. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 4 Analytical Framework Focus question Strategy for exploring Observed factors managing knowledge & Organizational factors Characterize decision-making that promote or hinder organizational culture & adoption? knowledge practices. managing norms & culture using social science EcoHealth principles Identify practiced? best-bet research practices. managing research Identify managing research Added value ZEID policies/practices of these practices? influenced by team. managing norms/culture Document managing expectations Costs & benefits cost mitigation & of these practices? benefit enhancement strategies.
  6. 6. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 5 Description of factors Exchanging knowledge & making decisions free flowing information, learning environment, informed decisions Using social science systems thinking via synthetic linking of studies/phases/components within a research project Managing research time & resource allocation for experimenting with EcoHealth Managing organizational culture & host institute norms re-tooling structures & habits to integrate EcoHealth principles Managing expectations to mitigate costs & capture benefits/added value
  7. 7. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 6 LOW capacity vertical information flow hierarchical decision-making Managing knowledge exchange & decision-making low information/knowledge exchange low peer-learning limited transdisciplinary collaboration
  8. 8. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 7 MEDIUM capacity Information/knowledge sharing less hierarchical decision-making Managing knowledge exchange & decision-making a learning environment in-team equity transdisciplinary coordination
  9. 9. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 8 HIGH capacity horizontal/equitable information flow Managing participatory decision-making knowledge exchange & decision-making an intentional learning community adaptive decision-making transdisciplinary collaboration for systems thinking
  10. 10. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 9 LIMITED integration of social science limited systems thinking Using social science limited integration of research studies no case-study or model construction approach minimal linkages with practice low potential for policy recommendations
  11. 11. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 10 SIMPLE integration of social science multidisciplinary thinking Using social science some integration of research studies consideration of case-study approach some linkages with practice some potential for policy recommendations
  12. 12. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 11 COMPLEX integration of social science systems thinking Using social science transdisciplinary integration of research studies use of case-study & model construction significant linkages with practice strategic policy recommendations
  13. 13. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 12 LOW capacity inefficient project administration inefficient research planning & Managing execution a research project low innovation potential minimal transdisciplinary collaboration minimal integration of EcoHealth
  14. 14. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 13 MEDIUM capacity efficient project administration efficient research planning & Managing execution a research project intentional innovations effective time/resource use for collaboration intentional integration of EcoHealth
  15. 15. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 14 HIGH capacity project administration to manage costs/benefits Managing research planning to create added value a research project innovation & experimentation transdisciplinary collaboration for mixed methods structured integration of EcoHealth
  16. 16. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 15 LOW capacity minimal negotiation Managing of institute norms organizational culture strong adherence to protocol, chain of command & disciplinary thinking minimal changes in communication protocol minimal integration of EcoHealth
  17. 17. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 16 MEDIUM capacity negotiation of institute norms Managing to integrate EcoHealth organizational culture strategic negotiation of protocols & chain of command effective communication of EcoHealth intentional move to systems thinking strategic integration of EcoHealth
  18. 18. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 17 HIGH capacity effective negotiation Managing of institute norms to integrate organizational culture EcoHealth redefinition of protocols, chain of command for transdisciplinarity establishment of organizational structures for EcoHealth EcoHealth-centered
  19. 19. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 18 LOW capacity limited appraisals of capacities, assets, resources Managing non-alignment with EcoHealth goals expectations limited value-added components limited institution-building
  20. 20. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 19 MEDIUM capacity realistic appraisals of capacities, assets, resources Managing alignment with EcoHealth goals expectations value-added components strategic institution-building
  21. 21. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 20 HIGH capacity mitigation of costs to capitalize on benefits alignment with EcoHealth goals Managing expectations value-added components strategic institution-building
  22. 22. EcoHealth Uptake Assessment – Adoption Factors & Dynamics 21 I. Transforming theory into practice – praxis – focusses on management. Conclusion II. Reflection & self-appraisal allows move from “Medium” to “High.” I. Managing - knowledge, decisions, social science use, research, organizational culture, expectations - impacts uptake of EcoHealth principles.
