The state of Biosafety in Nigeria requires critical interrogation as concerns mount up about the implications of Modern Agricultural Biotechnology on our health, environment, food systems and economy. More concerns are added as Nigeria begins move to sign into the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV).
Health of Mother Earth Foundation is organising a conference of consumers, farmers, academics, scientists, government officials, judiciary, faith-based organisations and civil society groups to examine these issues and define a sustainable course for Nigeria with regard to seed laws, agricultural productivity and food sovereignty.
This important conference is scheduled to hold in Abuja on 10 April 2019. To participate or contribute your ideas, you can send an email to [email protected]
