Bioversity International Is Not NGO

We received an e-mail from Nora Capozio of Bioversity International thanking and congratulating us for the article we wrote in this blog regarding the banana variant GCTCV that is resistant to Fusarium Wilt. Our article was posted in this blog on February 26, 2014.

She requested a correction. We stated in our article that Bioversity International is an international NGO. She said that Bioversity International is an “international research-for-development organization” and not an NGO.


Done ma’am. We have made the necessary correction in the article posted in this blog on Feb. 24, 2014.


This has left us thinking how much the reputation of NGOs has declined following the scams committed by so-called NGOs, especially in the Philippines. Of course, Bioversity International is not a government organization.
