International Project on
GMO Environmental Risk Assessment Methodologies
The GMO ERA Project is a pioneering initiative
driven by public sector scientists, most of whom have strong expertise
in environmental science, as well as biotechnology and socioeconomics.
The project has identified and developed scientific
methodologies and teaching tools that can be used for
environmental risk assessment (ERA) and management of transgenic
plants, in accordance with the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety and
other international agreements.
The third project book has been published by CABI:
