Risk assessment of GM crops should encourage comparative evaluation with conventional crops so as to determine the degree of risk before final judgment is passed in favour of one or another. This particular area requires urgent attention as this can form part of an education and awareness process, thereby increasing the understanding of the public and other key stakeholders including farmers, industry, policymakers as well as the scientific community on the risk assessment of GMOs.
Although, the risk assessment can be done without being made available as public documents (Personal Communication), given the importance of risk assessment in the light of building trust among the public and scientific community, its publication should be encouraged to reinforce the fact that it is part of the GMO regulatory processes before they are released to the farmers and consumers.
