|Samenvatting||This information sheet discusses the genetically modified (GM) soy debate which was carried out within the framework of the Development Policy Review Network (DPRN). In 2008, Plant Research International (PRI) at Wageningen University and Research Centre (WUR) and AidEnvironment initiated the GM soy debate in response to the highly polarised debate on the pros and cons of GM soy production. The first objective of the process was to perform research and then create a common and unbiased knowledge base as a response to key stakeholder concerns. This knowledge base provided a basis for constructive stakeholder dialogue about the possible impacts of GM soy and the promotion of responsible decision-making. Finally, the process delivered consensus-based recommendations on how to manage the risks and benefits of GM soy.|
