Biotech in the Philippines Resource

The Philippines is one of Southeast Asia's pioneering countries in biotech adoption. Since 2002, the country has been championing the science-based approach to risk assessment of biotechnology products and setting the standards for regulating the safe and responsible use of biotechnology applications. This approach encouraged innovation among Filipino scientists, who have been creating trailblazing biotechnology products that promote food security, agricultural progress, animal welfare, economic growth, and biodiversity conservation since then.

ISAAA, through the support of the Philippine Department of Agriculture Biotechnology Program, monitors the advances of Filipino biotech innovations. This resource page serves as a repository of ISAAA publications, articles from the Biotech Updates newsletter (formerly Crop Biotech Update), Pocket Ks, infographics, blog features, and peer-reviewed journal articles highlighting biotechnology applications, regulations, and communication efforts in the Philippines.
