Project Summary

This will be a 1.5 day workshop on the margins of the APEC HLPDAB Meeting. The goal of the workshop is to get economies to implement practical approaches, policies and regulations for the safe acceptance of agricultural biotechnology to solve issues of food security, climate change and scarce resources. There will be three sessions with the first setting the stage of successful adoption; no safety concerns; 30 years of experience; current issues; slow and cumbersome regulatory processes; and avoiding duplication of efforts. The second session will provide information on how economies  move forward in response to climate change, scarce resources and food security; why farmers adopt agricultural biotechnology (emphasis on smallholder farmers);  and on how public, state, and the private sectors can increase technology development and technology deployment.  The final session will identify practical tools and success stories including regulatory efficiencies; recognition policies; assessment, resource and information sharing; and precision breeding and other new technologies.
