Inter-Agency Network for Safety in Biotechnology (IANB)


A number of Intergovernmental Organisations have projects related to safety in biotechnology. Nine of these Organisations (CGIAR, CBD, FAO, OECD, OIE, UNCTAD, UNIDO, WHO and WTO) met in Paris, 25-26 November 1999. As a result of their discussions, they agreed that it would be valuable to form a network to enhance the exchange of information and facilitate co-operation. As one of its first steps, this Inter-Agency Network for Safety in Biotechnology (IANB) decided to publish a Newsletter, and develop this web site. It plans to hold a future meeting to assess progress with its work.
