Peru National Communication Plan ValidatedNovember 27, 2009
Stakeholders in Peru reviewed the communication and public perception on biosafety plan prepared by the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) Biosafety Project during the Workshop on Validation of the National Communications and Public Awareness Strategy and Plan of LAC-Biosafety Project, Peru held at the Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina (UNALM), Lima, Peru last November 17, 2009. This activity is part of the efforts to institutionalize a system to inform and educate stakeholders and the media, and through them to the general public.
The LAC Biosafety Project aims to strengthen technical capabilities in Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Peru by increasing its institutional effectiveness in the generation of scientific knowledge for making decisions, and by increasing its communication and public perception capacities for compliance with the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety.
According to Dr. William Roca, LAC -Biosafety Project regional coordinator, the project is being coordinated at the regional level by the International Center for Tropical Agriculture, and at the national level in Peru by the Institute of Biotechnology of UNALM, with the collaboration of the International Potato Center and the National Institute of Agrarian Innovation of Peru.
