This addendum accompanies the 2017 Agricultural Biotechnology Annual, and lists 2017 capacity building and/or outreach activities that relate to plant and animal biotechnologies. FAS/Nairobi’s goal is to reverse the ban on genetically engineered (GE) products ban, and to support commercialization, and trade of GE crops and products. Kenya and the east African region countries are keen on adopting modern GE technology. However, the technology is surrounded by a lot of misinformation. Therefore, Post needs to continue educating and creating public awareness to a wide range of different stakeholders to ease adoption and acceptability.
