SHAMEFUL: AFRICAN LEADERS URGED TO HARNESS BENEFITS OF BIOTECHNOLOGY TO ADDRESS FOOD SECURITY
The Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology has (OFAB) urged Africa leaders and other relevant institutions to harness the benefits of biotechnologies to UNDER THE GUISE OF promoting food security challenges on the continent...
SUMMARY: "The media should therefore act as agents of change by working closely with scientists and policy makers to define an African agenda for biotechnology," [Mr. Daniel Otunge, Coordinator of Open Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology, a programme of the African Agricultural Technology Foundation] said and pointed out that if that was not done, the continent would forever be dependent on food aid from countries that had adopted innovative agricultural technologies to improve food production. Mr. Otunge tasked the Ghanaian media to frame the biotechnology debate in a manner that would improve public negative perceptions toward the technology, citing genetically modified crops as an example."
