On May 23, the Government of Djibouti launched the pilot release of Oxitec's Friendly™ Anopheles stephensi mosquitoes, the first time a genetically modified (GM) mosquito has been released in East Africa. This ground-breaking initiative marks a crucial step in mitigating the increasing number of malaria cases in the region. The Djibouti Friendly™ Mosquito Program is a public-private partnership between Djibouti's National Malaria Control Program, the public health not-for-profit Association Mutualis, and Oxitec Ltd.

Researchers from University of California Riverside discovered that membrane-free organelles help plants identify shades of light and sense temperature. Future studies may involve controlling where the organelles form to help plants adjust to climate change. Membrane-bound compartments or organelles have been heavily studied by scientists. However, there is limited research on membrane-free organelles, such as photobodies, which help plants sense light and temperature

Professor Toshiki Furuya from Tokyo University of Science (TUS) and his graduate students Shizuka Fujimaki and Satsuki Sakamoto have successfully developed an enzyme that generates vanillin from plant-derived ferulic acid using genetic engineering approaches. Globally, vanilla extract is a widely used flavoring compound in food products and cosmetics. The pleasant and sweet smell of this classic flavor comes from the chemical compound vanillin found in the seed pods of vanilla plants belonging to the orchid family.

Often, we respond to the first question intuitively. We might convene with others to further develop and refine the response. We might make our response transparent by documenting it in a Theory of Change. But often we miss out on responding thoroughly and clearly to the second and third question. To do so, we would need to consider the wide range of factors that influence actors’ agency and behaviors and whether these influences differ for the different actors across the agri-food system.
