    Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms in the Environment, Volume 6 - OECD Consensus Documents

    This series represents a compilation of the biosafety consensus documents developed by the OECD Working Group on Harmonisation of Regulatory Oversight in Biotechnology over the periods 2011-12 (Volume 5) and 2013-15 (Volume 6). Volumes 5 and 6 describe the biology, centres of origin, genetics, hybridisation, production and use, and ecology elements of several crops (sugarcane, cassava, sorghum, common bean, cucurbits) and trees (eucalyptus species). They also provide considerations on pathogenicity factors in assessing the potential adverse health effects of bacteria, and the low level presence of transgenic plants in seed and grain commodities.
    The consensus documents contain information for use during the regulatory assessment of products of modern biotechnology, i.e. transgenic organisms (plants, animals, micro-organisms), when intended for release in the environment. As such, it should be of value to applicants for use of genetically-engineered organisms in agriculture mainly, to regulators and risk assessors in national authorities for their biosafety assessments, as well as the wider scientific community. More information on this OECD programme is found at BioTrack online (www.oecd.org/biotrack).

    Floods, droughts and doubts - Insights Blog

    “If He holds back the waters, there is drought; if He lets them loose, they devastate the land”. To be fair, that was in the days before governments played “a key role in developing targeted policy responses to market failures that impede the mitigation and allocation of drought and flood risks”, as the OECD report on Mitigating Droughts and Floods in Agriculture puts it.

    Les périls du tarissement - Vers une utilisation durable des eaux souterraines en agriculture

    Les eaux souterraines ont généré de larges bénéfices pour l’agriculture irriguée dans les zones semi-arides des pays de l’OCDE, mais l’utilisation intensive de ces eaux au-delà de leur taux de recharge dans certaines régions a conduit à l’abaissement du niveau des nappes phréatiques et engendré des externalités environnementales négatives. Ce rapport présente une caractérisation de la diversité des systèmes hydrogéologiques,  analyse les politiques des pays de l’OCDE et propose une panoplie de recommandations permettant aux eaux souterraines de contribuer de manière durable à la production agricole et de contribuer à son adaptation au changement climatique.
