FAO is a United Nations (UN) organisation with 191 Member Nations, plus one member organisation, the European Union. Here, we provide links to a small number of selected websites providing regularly-updated information related to agricultural biotechnology. The websites include those from
A) Other UN information sources
B) Non-UN inter-governmental organisations
C) The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and the research centres it supports (FAO is one of the four co-sponsors of the CGIAR).
