Regulatory Innovation: Breaking Biosafety Boundaries in Southern Africa (RIBBB-SA)
I: Informed decision making on Biosafety
This platform was established to stimulate national dialogue towards the finalization of the country’s National Biosafety Framework and to enhance opportunities for public awareness and engagement with the process.
The platform was established at the request of the country’s regulatory authority, with a view to facilitating the engagement of all actors, from the general public to high-level policymakers, to facilitate the enactment of the Biosafety Legislation.
This platform spearheaded and informed the public, and supported their subsequent participation in discussions on approvals for the production of Bt cotton in Zambia.
