Agriculture Biotechnology Support Project II (ABSP II)

by librarian2 — last modified Jan 10, 2013 08:45 AM

ABSPII is a USAID-funded consortium of public and private sector institutions that supports scientists, regulators, extension workers, farmers and the general public in developing countries to make informed decisions about agricultural biotechnology. Where demand exists, ABSPII focuses on the safe and effective development and commercialization of bio-engineered crops as a complement to traditional and organic agricultural approaches. The project helps boost food security, economic growth, nutrition and environmental quality in East and West Africa, Indonesia, India, Bangladesh and the Philippines. The consortium develops innovative, pragmatic solutions, building on the successes of the Agricultural Biotechnology Support Project (ABSP) that was led for over a decade by Michigan State University. ABSPII works collaboratively with the Program for Biosafety Systems (PBS) and the South Asia Biosafety Program (SABP).
