Senegal: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SG2022-0013

This is a regional report on West Africa that primarily covers Senegal, Burkina Faso, and Mali, but also provides brief overviews in certain sections for Niger, The Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, and Mauritania. Senegal and Mauritania passed new biosafety laws on June 14, 2022, and August 4, 2022, respectively. While legislative bodies in the FAS Dakar region are taking steps to allow the entry and commercialization of GE products, public perception of agricultural biotechnology tends to be distorted due to disinformation. Future market acceptance will depend on efforts to inform and educate the public about the safety and benefits of agricultural biotechnology.
