South Africa RABSAC Newsletter
October 2006
Marnus Gouse


Introduction

The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resource Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) has been facilitating a project called Regional Approach to Biosafety for Southern African Countries (RABSAC). This project is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the International Food Policy Research Institute's Programme for Biosafety Systems (PBS). The RABSAC project is part of a number of initiatives supported by PBS with the overall objective of documenting a balanced review of the technical information needed to responsibly inform regional biosafety policy choices.

This newsletter reports some of the main findings of the South African experience of genetically modified (GM) crops, as it was comprehensively discussed in a RABSAC Phase II report, available in the biotech and biosafety section of FANRPAN's website at www.fanrpan.org.
