Position on Genetic Engineering and Genetically Modified Organisms

Position on Genetic Engineering  and Genetically Modified Organisms

The IFOAM - Organics International position paper 'Genetic Engineering and Genetically Modified Organisms' calls for governmental recognition of the negative impacts caused by GMOs already released, with corresponding remediation. It also calls attention to the fact that these negative impacts are a symptom of a more systemic problem arising from the dominant agro-industrial economic paradigm that does not heed the Principles of Organic Agriculture.

This position paper addresses all of agriculture, its market channels, and supporting policy and infrastructure; it is not just for those parts currently focused on or aware of the organic sector.
