About us

Who we are

Biowatch South Africa was established in 1997 to publicise, monitor and research issues of genetic modification, and to promote biological diversity and sustainable livelihoods. Biowatch's head office is in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. A rural office in Mtubatuba works with small-scale farmers on sustainable agriculture, food and seed security, and farmers' rights.

Our main aim is to prevent biological diversity from being privatised for corporate gain. To this end, we strive to ensure an environment where people control their food supply systems, where the benefits from commercial use of biological resources are fairly shared, and where ordinary citizens are encouraged to help make policy choices about new technologies, such as genetic modification.

How we are structured

A board of trustees oversees the overall policy and direction of Biowatch South Africa and a director and staff carry out the day-to-day running of the organisation.

Our mission

Biowatch South Africa strives to prevent biological diversity from being privatised for corporate gain. We aspire to an environment where people control their food supply systems, where the benefits from commercial use of biological resources are fairly shared and where ordinary citizens are encouraged to help make policy choices about new technologies, such as, genetic modification. We are working towards a future where there is no hunger, where there is social justice and where our land, water and air is protected.
