About this product
- DescriptionBiotechlogy offers great potential to contribute to sustainable agricultural growth, food security and poverty alleviation in developing countries. Yet there are ecomic and institutional constraints at national and international levels that inhibit the poor people's access to appropriate biotechlogical invations. Agricultural Biotechlogy in Developing Countries: Towards Optimizing the Benefits for the Poor addresses the major constraints. Twenty-three chapters, written by a wide range of scholars and stake-holders, provide an up-to-date analysis of agricultural biotechlogy developments in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Besides the expected ecomic and social impacts, the challenges for an adjustment of the international research structure are discussed, with a special focus on intellectual property rights and the roles of the main research organizations. Harnessing the comparative advantages of the public and private sectors through invative partnerships is the only way forward to optimize the benefits of biotechlogy for the poor. The book will be an invaluable resource for both academics and policy-makers concerned with agricultural biotechlogy in context of developing-countries.
