Environmental, Socio-economic, and Health Impact Assessment (ESHIA) for Gene Drive Organisms

isaaa Inc. and Outreach Network for Gene Drive Research,  ISAAA,  2023.

Understanding the possible positive and negative impacts that gene drive organisms could have on the environment and people is essential before these technologies are considered for release, whether for research purposes or for use. Different impacts are assessed through different tools and methodologies. While environmental risks are evaluated through specific risk assessments, other dimensions, such as positive and negative impacts on a social, economic, and health level can be assessed through impact assessments. These environmental, socio-economic and health impact assessments can complement the information provided by environmental risk assessments.
