African Biosafety Network of Expertise (ABNE)

The African Biosafety Network of Expertise (ABNE) is an Africa-based, Africa-led initiative established by the AU/NEPAD’s Office of Science and Technology. ABNE is a continent-wide service network that was officially approved in 2008 by the African Ministerial Council on Science and Technology (AMCOST) to promote advancement of science and technology for agricultural development in Africa. ABNE biosafety services aim to empower African regulators with science-based information, targeting the members of National Biosafety Committees (NBCs), Institutional Biosafety Committees (IBCs), and Plant Quarantine Officers (PQs) so that they can make informed decisions on biotechnology products.
