The ISAAA Knowledge Center initiative arose in response to a request from senior policy makers and national program leaders in Southeast Asia. The principal goal is to share knowledge on all aspects of crop biotechnology for all stakeholders, including consumers, farmers, policy makers, scientists, and the media in developing countries.

ISAAA 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.
