For a Jubilee issue it would seem wise to reflect on the information the Monitor covers. Since the 1980s the Monitor has informed the reader about. biotechnological developments and related issues (such as intellectual property rights), and their impacts on development. Concerning agro- and food biotechnological developments, gradually more attention has been paid to initiatives that aim to establish a new development paradigm. This article discusses the changeover from an exogenous to an endogenous development paradigm and the related changeover from agroindustrial gentechnologies to tailor-made biotechnologies - one that may also have implications for information the Monitor includes in future.
