The Zambia Alliance for Agroecology and Biodiversity (ZAAB) calls for good governance and integrity in policy revision processes and raises concern over the Ministry of Higher Education proposed new National Biotechnology and Biosafety Policy, December 2020.

ZAAB communique adopted at the 5th December 2020 Annual General Meeting, Blue Crest Lodge, Lusaka

There is no national consensus on GMOs: we maintain the Right to say No to GMOs in our food and agri-culture

We, the members of the Zambia Alliance for Agroecology and Biodiversity, reject the untimely and imbalanced revision of the Zambia Biotechnology and Biosafety Policy (BBP).

We condemn the push by the governing ministry and its mandated agency to shift Zambia’s precautionary and protective stance on the use of Modern Biotechnology. We wholeheartedly object to the clear disregard for the need for broad public consultation and participation in this significant national policy process.
