Africa: policy on genetically modified organisms (GMO) and genetically engineered (GE) foods

Year: 2006 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The Cartagena protocol on biosafety, a supplement to the convention on biological diversity, has strong support in Africa, with a majority of the countries as signatories. In addition, several countries have, in the past, rejected aid (especially unmilled grains) in food imports with concerns for national biosafety. South Africa is so far the only country that is seeing wide-spread use of genetically modified crops.
