In Nagoya Japan

As part of my job as Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI www.ifpri.org) I am now in Nagoya attending the meetings of the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety as part of the larger Convention on Biological Diversity conference. We are presenting our past and current research in the area of socio-economic assessments resulting from the adoption of Genetically Modified crops in developing countries.

Here are my two presentations:

“Inclusion of Socio-Economic Considerations in Biosafety Decision Making: Governance and Implementation Issues”

“Socio-Economic Impact Assessments and Biotechnology: The Experience to Date”

Honduras is a "Party" to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety and the Convention of Biological Diveristy. Honduras is the only country in Central America who has authorized the cultivation of transgenic maize resistant to specific insects.
