Biowatch South Africa
Established in 1997, Biowatch South Africa publicises, monitors and researches issues of genetic modification as well as promoting biodiversity and sustainable livelihoods. Biowatch is based in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa with its head office in Durban and a rural office that works with small scale farmers on sustainable agriculture, food and seed security and farmers’ rights.
Biowatch’s ideal is a world where there is no hunger, where there is social justice and where land, water and air are protected. Toward this aim, Biowatch is working toward an environment where people control their own food supply systems, where the benefits from commercial use of biological resources are fairly shared and where ordinary citizens are encouraged to help make policy choices about new technologies, such as genetic engineering. In addition, Biowatch strives to prevent biodiversity from being privatised for corporate gain.
