Capacity Building

The project enhances the capacity of developing countries in the development, regulation, and commercialization of biotech crops. This involves building capacity of local researchers and stakeholders on such issues as intellectual property rights, regulatory and biosafety requirements, socio-economic impacts, and communicating biotechnology.

Most importantly, the proactive dissemination of scientific and accurate information about biotechnology products has enhance the understanding of the scientific community, policymakers, and farmers on the premises and issues behind the use of bio-engineered products. Thus, all stakeholders, especially the farmers, can make better- informed decisions about the use of biotech products.
