- Tanner & Moore - 20090521 - Mariam Mayet

Tanner & Moore cohosts Stuart Tanner and James Moore speak with South African environmental activist Mariam Mayet.

Mayet, who lives in Johannesberg, is the founder and director of the African Centre for Biosafety. Under her direction, the organisation has developed from one with a focus primarily on biosafety to one with four key programmes: biosafety, biopiracy, agrofuels and challenging industrial agricultural models such as the Green Revolution push in Africa. Her particular interest is in cutting edge research, providing sound credible information and analysis and putting information into the public domain.
