Agricultural biotechnology for developing countries. Results of an electronic forum FAO Research and Technology Papers, 2001. 122 pp. ISBN 9251047022 US$ 14 Euro 14.20
For or against biotechnology in agriculture? It's always good to discuss the differences in opinions. From March 2000 to May 2001, FAO organised an email conference on agricultural biotechnology in developing countries, in six 2-month sessions. No less than 1,300 people from 47 countries " 40% from developing countries " took part. The first four sessions dealt with current technologies for crops, fisheries, forestry and livestock, the fifth with the relationship between biotechnology and food security and the sixth with intellectual property rights. It is often difficult to summarise discussions, but the editors did well with a lively style, letting people have their say in a clear structured framework. Above all, they did well to put it in print, to let people without email access share in the results. Agricultural biotechnology for developing countries.
