By Aaron Humes: As part of a capacity building workshop on bio-safety in Belize, the Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA) is conducting a GMO risk assessment training under the UNEP/GEF funded National Bio-safety Project.
The one week workshop is meant to train participants on the scientific principles of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and provide an update on new developments and trends in GMO technology. At the end of workshop, regulators from BAHA and government will be better able to conduct risk assessments and support developing a regulatory framework for biosafety in Belize.
The workshop session started today at the George Price Centre and continues through to Friday at the University of Belize, Central Farm Conference Room
The workshop is being hosted by a group of international consultants from the International Center for Genetic Engineering and Biosafety (ICGEB) of the United Nations.
