Organisations and institutions active on GMOs

GMO Free Campaign in India
Navdanya has led the national and international movement for biosafety and against the dangers of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in agriculture. Working with citizens’ movements, grassroot organizations, NGOs and governments, we have made significant contributions to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Biosafety Protocol.

Greenpeace India
The anti GE campaign has contributed in ensuring a serious debate on the need for GE crops in the country. It has also ensured that India does not approve commercialisation of any GM food crop. The campaign has brought together farmers, consumers, traders, scientists and other civil society organisations to put up a brave front against the entry of GM crops in our country. This resulted in the indefinite moratorium on Bt brinjal, the first GM food crop that was up for commercialisation.
