Organisation Detail Profile Details Activities
ISAAA is a not-for-profit organisation that delivers the benefits of new agricultural biotechnologies to the poor in developing countries. It aims to share these powerful technologies with those who stand to benefit from them, and at the same time establish an enabling environment for their safe use. It is a small, responsive, non-bureaucratic international network with centres in developing and industrialised countries. Its centres are based in the Philippines, Kenya and the USA. A Global Coordinator based in the Southeast Asia Center in the Philippines provides overall management. Its centres in developing countries analyse the needs of the region's resource-poor farmers, and those in industrialised countries identify biotechnology applications for transfer.

ISAAA's mission is to contribute to poverty alleviation by increasing crop productivity and income generation, particularly for resource-poor farmers, and to bring about a safer environment and more sustainable agricultural development.

ISAAA's objectives are the transfer and delivery of appropriate biotechnology applications to developing countries and the building of partnerships between institutions in the South and the private sector in the North, and by strengthening South - South collaboration.
