Developing environmental risk assessment for genetically modified crops

Description:
Environmental risk assessment procedures are required which are well-defined and broad enough to cover indirect as well as direct effects of genetically modified crops.
Claim:
Biotech companies are very keen to push genetically engineered organisms and products on countries in the southern hemisphere. But the threats posed by the technology to the environment, health and livelihoods of farmers are too high in the midst of great uncertainties and absence of regulatory rules.
