RG-T3431 : Assessment of the Regulatory and Institutional Framework for Gene-editing via CRISPR-based Technologies in Latin America and the Caribbean

Project Status: Implementation

The main objective of this TC is to provide guidance for national agencies of the countries members of the Bank responsible for biotechnology applied to the agriculture sector to bridge existing agricultural biotechnology policy to explicitly address gene-editing in regulatory development and/or updates. We will create the first specialized report on gene-editing in agriculture for the LAC region, outlining explicit roadmaps with decision break points to guide agencies considering the socio-economic, competitiveness, and trade implications of regulatory updates.
