FAO recognises the potential of biotechnology in promoting human well-being, particularly in meeting critical needs for food, agriculture and health care, and the need to promote the safe adoption of biotechnology through biosafety as defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety. Biosafety refers to the need to protect human health and the environment from the possible adverse effects of the products of modern biotechnology.
