Description:

The FAO international technical conference on Agricultural biotechnologies in developing countries: Options and opportunities in crops, forestry, livestock, fisheries and agro-industry to face the challenges of food insecurity and climate change” (ABDC-10, http://www.fao.org/biotech/abdc/) took place in Guadalajara, Mexico in March 2010. A major objective of the conference was to take stock of the application of biotechnologies across the different food and agricultural sectors in developing countries, in order to learn from the past and to identify options for the future to face the challenges of food insecurity, climate change and natural resource degradation. The FAO Biotechnology Forum is hosting this e-mail conference on “GMOs in the pipeline: Looking to the next five years in the crop, forestry, livestock, aquaculture and agro-industry sectors in developing countries” to look into the near future in order to inform the debate about GMOs in the pipeline, considering the specific kind of GMOs that are likely to be commercialized in developing countries over the next five years and to discuss their potential implications.
