Food security now or wait for research to assess risks?: genetically modified crops and smallholder farmers in Africa
The Nordic Africa Institute, Agrarian Change, Property and Resources.
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Genetically modified (GM) crops are by proponents considered as a possible solution to the food and nutrition problems in developing countries. However, there are also concerns of how side effects may affect environment and human health. These will probably still remain unknown for decades. But can Africa wait 30 years for research to give a definite answer about the risks connected with biotechnology?
