International Day on Biological Diversity today #IBD2019

As Nigeria joins the rest of the world to mark the 2019 International Day for Biological Diversity today #IBD2019, the National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA) which is the national focal point of the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (CPB) to the Convention on Biological diversity (CBD) joins in the call for sustainable practices in the conservation of our nation’s biodiversity.
This year’s International Day for Biological Diversity with the theme “our Biodiversity, our Food, our Health” focuses on biodiversity as the foundation for our food and health and as a key catalyst to transforming food systems and improving human well-being.

The NBMA whose mandate is to ensure the safe application of modern biotechnology and its products such as genetically modified organism (GMOs) restates its commitment to ensure that GM products are confirmed safe before release into the Nigerian Market.
