About this book

The implications of advances in biotechnology and the conservation of genetic resources, for the Third World in general and Africa in particular, are the focus of this book. The author argues that the new techniques, unlike earlier technological revolutions, are applicable to small-scale, labour-intensive production and thus offer Africa a significant opportunity to transform its economy. `Given the current ecological and economic problems in developing regions and their wealth of germplasm resources, the book is timely in its emphasis on their need to implement policies enabling genetic resources and biotechnology to contribute to sustainable development.' Mostafa K Tolba, Executive Director, UNEP, Nairobi
