Africa steps up genetic engineering for climate-resilient crops

African scientists say they are scaling up research on genetically modified (GM) crops such as maize and cassava to increase food security on the continent as climate change places increased stress on yields.

In October 2022, Kenya joined African nations already using genetic engineering to address agricultural productivity challenges which have been aggravated by climate change, ending more than a ten-year ban on genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
