Book Explores Intersection Of Policymaking In IP, Biodiversity
By Catherine Saez, Intellectual Property Watch on 19/04/2011 @ 12:57 pm
A new book published by GTZ, the German federal agency for international development, looks at the synergies between intellectual property rights and biodiversity, gathering analysis from Latin America, southern Africa and Asia experts.
The book looks at recent developments in key intellectual property and biodiversity-related policy processes, such as those taking place at the World Trade Organization, United Nations Convention On Biological Diversity, UN World Intellectual Property Organization, UN Food and Agriculture Organization, and the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants. The book means to open a dialogue between forums where the relationship between biodiversity and IP is discussed.
It also presents practical experiences with access and benefit sharing and the protection of traditional knowledge, and explores disclosure and legal provenance provisions in intellectual property laws.
The book was presented and discussed at the 10th Conference of Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in Nagoya, Japan, according to the website.
