Caribbean Basin: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Biotech regulations have been virtually non-existent in the Caribbean. However, that may change in the years ahead as several Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries continue to work toward implementing National Biosafety Frameworks (NBFs) in order to comply with their obligations under the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (CPB), to which they are parties. To date, only one CARICOM country (St. Kitts and Nevis) has enacted biosafety legislation. Thus, much work remains to be done before NBF’s are fully operational throughout the region.
