Biotechnology safety: enabling the safe use of biotechnology: principles and practice and appropriate oversight for plants with inherited traits for resistance to pests



Biotechnology safety: enabling the safe use of biotechnology: principles and practice and appropriate oversight for plants with inherited traits for resistance to pests



Environment 39: 30



Two recent reports try to guide nations intending to carry out the UN Conference on Environment and Development's Agenda 21 by developing conventions for the safe use of biotechnology. Enabling the Safe Use of Biotechnology: Principles and Practice, by the World Bank, is a curious mixture of recommendations for government agencies that wish to address the "concern" about biotechnology risks and claims that the risks are mostly negligible or hypothetical. Appropriate Oversight for Plants with Inherited Traits for Resistance to Pests, distributed by the Institute of Food Technologies in Chicago, provides an alternative perspective on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulation of biotechnology products, but it presents only one side of a complex scientific and regulatory story. Although the reports are informative and provide important perspectives, they pay no attention to the recent global divisions over the introduction of bioengineered organisms into agriculture.
