Biosafety and Regulatory Training

Biosafety and Regulatory Training

SCIFODE helped trained Virus Resistant Cassava for Africa (VIRCA) and the Water Efficient Maize for Africa (WEMA) projects’ staff on Biosafety, regulatory and compliance issues. This has brought SCIFODE to work closer the National Biosafety Committee (NBC) and the Ministry of Agriculture whenever key activities like establishing a trial site or terminating a trial arise. The compliance trainings that SCIFODE conducts involves scientists and non-scientists working or employed to work at the trial sites for Genetic Engineering work. In addition to Biosafety and Compliance trainings, SCIFODE equips project staff on how to respond to external threats for the Anti-GMO-lobbyists and activists establishing channels of reporting.
