This toolkit provides a practical ‘how to’ guide for biosafety mainstreaming and is complimentary to the e-learning module on biosafety mainstreaming which introduces the concept of biosafety mainstreaming and its application. Case studies are provided throughout as practical examples.
This e-learning module introduces the concept of biosafety mainstreaming and its application in practice. It will introduce modern biotechnology and biosafety and address the following three questions: - What is biosafety mainstreaming? - Why is biosafety mainstreaming important? - How can biosafety be mainstreamed into national legislation, policies and institutional frameworks?

This interactive application allows the user to develop a national mainstreaming strategy. The Strategy is intended to set out practical actions to achieve integration of biosafety concerns into national sectoral and cross-sectoral legislation, policies and institutional frameworks. The application provides a step-by-step guide to develop a draft strategy which can serve as a workplan and a basis for focused discussion with relevant stakeholders. Upon completion, the strategy may be printed, saved as a PDF file or exported to excel to be complemented at a later stage.
