In India, researchers "found that the destruction of vultures raised all-cause human death rates by more than 4% in districts which were once highly suitable for vultures and later lost them."

"In a country with more than 500 million livestock, and without an infrastructure to dispose of dead livestock animals, livestock farmers historically relied on vultures as environmental sanitisers (Subramanian 2014). In their absence, carcasses of dead animals spend time out in the open or are disposed by farmers in water, both of which create an increased risk of disease and water pollution." https://voxdev.org/topic/energy-environment/how-human-and-ecosystem-health-are-intertwined-evidence-vulture-population-collapse-india

Does funding evaluation of these interventions count, including a trial? Or only roll-out beyond a trial?
