This project endeavoured to build national capacity for decision-making with respect to Living Modified Organisms(LMOs) through mechanisms such as screening notifications and risk assessments. It also sought to increase public awareness on biotechnology and biosafety issues. This National Biosafety Framework (NBF) project enabled The Bahamas to develop a national policy on biosafety and biosecurity. Such polices did not previously exist.
