The Program for Biosafety Systems (PBS) is an IFPRI-managed program that supports our partner countries in Africa and Asia in the responsible development and use of agricultural biotechnology. PBS effectively addresses biosafety through an integrated program of research, capacity development, and outreach. PBS is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
See the Program for Biosafety Systems website for additional information.
