Our History

The journey of BIBA Kenya begun with the Kenya GMO Concern way back in 2002. After five years, the network felt the need to broaden its mandate from just fighting against genetic engineering to the raising concerns about other issues affecting our biodiversity.

The year 2007 saw the birth of the Kenya Biodiversity Coalition (KBioC) as a loose coalition whose main objective was broadened to ensure the public is AWARE and ALERT on issues of concern on environment, agriculture, livestock, food safety and health and biodiversity.

Apart from the campaign against genetically engineered crops, the coalition broadened its mandate to issues related to soil fertility and the folly of embracing the ‘green revolution’ push that was promoting the use of synthetic fertilizers to improve soil fertility and using food crops like maize to produce biofuels.

In 2014, the coalition saw the need for grounding of its work and established a secretariat hosted and by PELUM Kenya. Another milestone was reached in 2017 when KBioC became officially registered as the Biodiversity and Biosafety Association of Kenya signaling a new beginning.
