Marcial Amaro Jr., ERDB director, said that the effort of the bureau is to find answers to questions on whether the advancements of science are in harmony with biodiversity.
"There are a lot of unknowns, specifically on the production of GMO that we are looking into and try to understand them on whether they conform to the parameters of biosafety," Amaro said.

"The government recognized that modern biotechnology has great potential for human well-being if developed and used with adequate safety measures for the environment and human health," Marcial Amaro Jr., ERDB national director, told reporters here on Tuesday.
He said the government has put in place measures, in line with the Cartagena Protocol, to ensure that research geared toward food production and food security involving genetically modified organisms (GMO) is safe. The Cartagena Protocol focuses on preventing the contamination of the environment and other organinisms by any living modified organism resulting from modern biotechnology. The protocol defines measures that prevent the adverse effect of GMOs to ensure the sustainable use of biological diversity. Amaro admitted that resistance to the use of GMO in food production continues but added this was due to the critics' outright rejection of scientific studies. He said critics have pre-conditioned their minds that GMOs were hazardous to human and environmental safety even if they did not have basis. Amaro said with many studies done in the past, the government is now confident that risks, if any, in connection with the use of GMOs in food production can be readily addressed.
