GMOs in the pipeline: Have your say in an FAO e-mail conference

From 5 November to 2 December 2012 the FAO Biotechnology Forum is hosting its next e-mail conference on “GMOs in the pipeline: Looking to the next five years in the crop, forestry, livestock, aquaculture and agro-industry sectors in developing countries“.

Its goal is to inform the debate about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the pipeline, considering the specific kind of GMOs that are likely to be commercialised in developing countries over the next five years (that is, before the end of 2017) and to discuss the likely implications of these new GMOs for developing countries.

The conference is open to everyone, is free and will be moderated.

To subscribe to the conference, send an e-mail to with the following one line in the body of the message (leave the subject line blank):

Where firstname and lastname refer to the person’s first and last name.
