    Abstract Degradation of the environment and loss of biodiversity are negatively affecting human health and well-being. It has been estimated that environmental factors account for about one quarter of the global burden of diseases. Over the years, several conceptual framing that link human health to nature have evolved including Biodiversity and Health, Planetary Health, Eco health, One Health, Health in socio-ecological systems – all of which take a systems approach to addressing human well-being with the natural environment. Policy forums including the World Health Organization and the Convention on Biological Diversity have undertaken a joint program of work and independent guidance to their member states to advocate for energizing policy approaches on environment and health. This chapter through literature review and illustrative examples highlights these various efforts and the necessity and feasibility of implementing such integrated approaches at multiple levels of implementation.
