The report assesses the communication and public opinion of GM products, the status of the biosafety regulatory structures, scientific and research capacity, and the potential impact on smallholder farmers' livelihoods.
This event featured a discussion with Dr. Wilberforce Tushemereirwe, Director of National Agricultural Research Laboratories (NARL) and expert on banana research; Dr. John McMurdy, International Research and Biotechnology Adviser of USAID's Bureau for Food Security; and the report authors as they discuss the controversial issue and share key research findings.ProgramsTopicsRegions
