dc.description.abstract The research aimed at highlighting the bio-safety practices and regulation followed for the release of the first genetically modified cotton variety Seeny-1 in Sudan. The need for GM food and safe crop handling, trans-boundary movement and release into environment are being addressed through investigating the procedures followed in the release of seeny-1 for the farming community in Sudan. Results revealed that: -Scientists who were actively enrolled in GMO bio-safety issues for more than ten years represented 46% while those working for more than five years were 24%. -Ninety percent of scientists working on GMO agree with international protocols for handling modern biotechnology procedures and biosafety regulations. -sixty seven percent of scientists agree that they are not experienced with scientific, legal and regulatory procedures of GMO bio-safety in Sudan. -The majority of scientists (64%) disagreed with the procedures which lead to quick release of the GMO variety and revealed that more information was needed on environmental, biodiversity and socioeconomic impacts. -The status of biosafety regulations in Sudan need to stream line with globally accredited institutions to safeguard trade, health precautions, natural resources and environmental issues with clear risk\benefit analysis approach. -The degree of coordination among different actors and committees working in the bio-safety mechanisms is weak considering adherence to the ratified Cartagena protocol on bio-safety. en_US
