This text examines the international agreements governing trade in genetic resources - crucial resources for world agriculture, food security and large industries such as pharmaceuticals. Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) in these resources are critical for those involved in the trade, including industry and developing countries. The book analyzes the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), World Trade Organization agreements and other agreements. It explains how they can be integrated into an equitable training regime.
Graham Dutfield is senior research Fellow at the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development, and Senior Research Associate at the Oxford Centre for Intellectual Property Research at St Peter's College, University of Oxford.
