Despite the numerous scientific studies and evidence-based facts finding missions that have proved modern agricultural biotechnology derived products are economically sustainable as safe as their conventional counterparts, many Ghanaians are sceptical of GMOs. OFAB Ghana was established to take a proactive approach in making the facts clear to counter the anti-GMO narrative. As part of our activities OFAB Ghana has trained several stakeholders on the facts of biotechnology.
Forging Strategic Alliances
Advocacy is best done in a coalition of like minds. Thus OFAB Ghana continuously creates avenues and leverage on a number of strategic alliances and networks. Through these partnerships OFAB Ghana has successfully worked with stakeholders and created training opportunities for stakeholders. Some OFAB Ghana partners have been trained on biotechnology at Cornell University in the US courtesy of our partnership with the Cornell Alliance for Science which helps strengthen their capacity.
