ETC Group calls for the creation of an international technology evaluation and information mechanism to assess the health, environmental, economic and social impacts of new and emerging technologies.

Governments should adopt a process to develop an international technology evaluation and information mechanism – based on the Precautionary Principle – that will strengthen national sovereignty and build capacity, especially in the global South, to assess the health, environmental, economic and social impacts of new and emerging technologies such as biotechnology, nanotechnology and synthetic biology.
