The issue of genetically modified (GM) agriculture and its relevance to developing countries is one that is fiercely contested. The debates surrounding the adoption of GM technology by developing countries are multifaceted and complex.The Politics of Genetically Modified Agriculture in Africa investigates claims regarding the use of GM crops to benefit the poor in Africa. The validity of claims for 'pro-poor' GM agriculture are analysed through a critique of the science model employed by scientists, policy-makers and some non-governmental organisations. This investigation is underpinned by further exploration of the conceptualisation of 'poor', the governance of GM and the engagement of a wide range of stakeholders. In regards to policy implementation, the book concludes that claims for 'pro-poor' GM agriculture cannot be substantiated, and are inadequate as a justification for policies to promote the adoption of this technology.The Politics of Genetically Modified Agriculture in Africa will be of interest to students and scholars of environmental politics, where the development of the GM food debate continues to cause political debate and contestation. It will also be of interest to those in the fields of African Studies and Politics.
