    Meeting
    Technical Consultation on Biological Risk Management in Food and Agriculture. Report of the Technical Consultation.
    Bangkok, Thailand, 13-17 January 2003
    2003
    The Technical Consultation on Biological Risk Management in Food and Agriculture met in Bangkok, Thailand, from 13 to 17 January 2003. The list of delegates and observers is attached as Appendix A. The aim of the Consultation was to consult Governments on the possibilities to harmonize, where appropriate, methods of risk analysis, to enhance capacity-building where needed, particularly among developing countries and countries with economies in transition, and to establish an official information exchange system on biological risk management in food and agriculture (“Biosecurity”). The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) had established a Priority Area for Interdisciplinary Action on Biosecurity, to coordinate this process within the Organization. During 2002, consultations had taken place with other relevant international organizations to explore the possibility of cooperation in this field. An Expert Consultation, with nineteen international experts and resource persons, had been held to pave the way for the current Technical Consultation, the results of which would be reported to FAO’s Committee on Agriculture (COAG) at its March 2003 session.
