This collaboration encompasses joint research projects, the organization of workshops for exchange of information on technical issues and policy matters, including regulations and product authorization procedures for GMOs. <BR>Capacity-building specifically targeted to biosafety includes funding for genetic resources and biosafety projects in Asia, Latin America, and Mediterranean countries and development of methodologies to assess and conserve biodiversity.
