South Asia Biosafety Program (SABP)

This program provides technical assistance to the biosafety risk assessment and research communities in India and Bangladesh, and further supports governments’ efforts to implement functional and scientifically sound regulatory processes for agricultural biotechnology. It works with its in-country partners to:

  1. Identify and respond to technical training needs for genetically engineered food, feed, and environmental safety assessment;
  2. Develop a network of trained, authoritative local experts to communicate about the science of agricultural biotechnology and its biosafety to interested stakeholders; and
  3. Facilitate systems for permitting the safe conduct of experimental field trials of new crops developed using biotechnology so that scientists and farmers can evaluate them.
