Advocacy & Grassroot Networking

In 2015, key advocacy areas that SCIFODE participated in were: the ongoing effort to have the national Biotechnology and Biosaftey Bill enacted into law; Pushing the Ministry of Agricultures to fast track the establishment of regulations and Offices under the Plant Variety Protection Act. Mobilised stakeholders to counter the controversial lease of the research land at Namulonge. This brought in new partners such as Uganda Land Alliance, Global Food Basket, and National Farmers Forum on Agricultural Biotechnology. SCIFODE also convened a meeting on sensitizing stakeholders on how poorly stored feeds and foods can result into aflatoxin contaminations and the various possible effects on animals and human beings.
