Summary: Margot Parkes, Canada Research Chair in Health, Ecosystems and Society, UNBC
My research orientation originated during training and work as a medical doctor in New Zealand
and subsequently in public health, human ecology, and the emerging field of ecohealth, or
ecosystem approaches to health. My interest in water-related determinants of health began with a
focus on watershed management and public health in rural river catchments in New Zealand and
has developed through work in Europe, Hawaii, Ecuador and Canada. My current research
focuses on impacts of ecosystem change on social determinants of health especially in the
context of watersheds in rural, remote and Indigenous communities. Another focus includes the
design of education, research and governance options to address the converging objectives of
health, social equity and ecosystem sustainability. Informed by the intersectoral, interdisciplinary
and boundary-crossing nature of this work, I have specific interests in the collaborative and
multi-stakeholder processes required to address complex issues at the interface of health and
sustainability.
