About the Book

The foremost aim of the Scientific Conference is to advance the current understanding of biosafety in terms of the ecological, human health and socio-economic implications of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). To that end, the event works towards:

·         Sharing the most recent scientific findings of biosafety research with a wide range of Japanese stakeholders and, during the 5th Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (COP-MOP 5) in Nagoya, also with negotiators and observers from other countries;

·         Providing opportunities for exchange of experiences and views related to biosafety policy and regulation; and

·         Promoting public participation in framing risk research, technology assessment and decision-making related to biosafety.

The cooperation between ENSSER, TWN and the DVW provides a unique opportunity to bring together independent scientists from industrialized and developing countries. This activity is seen as critical to maintain and demonstrate diversity in scientific approaches in the fields of risk research and research addressing socio-economic issues.

The second aim is to inform the delegates at the COP-MOP 5 about the current scientific challenges in biosafety research and assessment, and to contribute effectively to the political and legal discussions at the Nagoya meeting.
