At its 15th Session in 1999, COAG made five main recommendations in regard to Biotechnology that were subsequently endorsed by Council and by the 30th Session of the FAO Conference. The Secretariat of the Interdepartmental Working Group (IDWG) on Biotechnology provided in 2001 a report to the 16th Session on progress made (COAG/01/Inf 2), focusing largely on the work conducted by individual departments of the Organization. This report describes progress made since then on each recommendation in bringing an interdisciplinary perspective to FAO’s work on biotechnology.
