Dear CFS/HLPE Secretariat,


Grateful for the opportunity to participate in this public consultation, I have submitted general comments in a collective submission (see: “Comment by transdisciplinary team of scientists working in food and agriculture systems”).


In this separate submission, I provide a few supplementary notes on chapter sections sustainable intensification (2.3.2) and genetically modified organisms (3.2.6).


I am a researcher who focuses on crop genetic diversity, biotechnologies, and their impacts on agriculture and food systems in developing countries. My perspective is informed by a background in molecular biology and science writing, and PhD studies in political ecology and human geography.


Thank you,
