WIPO Regional Forum on Tuesday

World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) Regional Forum on Intellectual Property and Environmentally Sound Technologies will take place on May 29-31 in Sri Lanka.
Besides the WIPO Regional Forum, another event, the (SAARC) Roundtable on Sub-Regional Cooperation on Use of Intellectual Property for Development and Acquisition of Environmentally Sound Technologies, will also be held on the occasion.
The meeting has been arranged to bring policy makers and experts in one platform to deliberate on ways and means to protect and promote environment friendly resources of energy in the region.
The World Intellectual Property Organisation in cooperation with National Intellectual Property Office Sri Lanka (NIPOS) and Japan Patent Office (JPO) has organised the event.
Delegates from Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, Iran, Indonesia, Maldives, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, Japan and Vietnam will participate in the three-day event, where they will also discuss environmental degradation and effects of climate change.
Participants will interact on how intellectual property system contributes to sustainable development through transfer of environmentally sound technologies. The forum will provide an opportunity to discuss possible international cooperation to enhance sub regional cooperation in the field of intellectual property to develop and acquire environmentally sound technologies.
Earlier, the forum had held four meetings; in Colombo (1998), in Kathmandu (1999), in Dhaka (2001) and in Thimpu (2002), apartfrom an expert workshop in New Delhi (2003).
The third SAARC-WIPO Forum held in 2001 had outlined the strategy on Traditional Knowledge protection with particular emphasis on collective ownership of Traditional Knowledge, documentation of Traditional Knowledge, establishing systems for access and benefit sharing in relation to GRs, creation of a community knowledge fund for these purposes, and human resource development. The forum had also proposed model legislation on Traditional Knowledge, mechanisms, contractual terms and practices, regulating access to and benefits sharing in GRs, protection and conservation - a model relevant for international protection of Traditional Knowledge.
The fourth meeting of the Forum reiterated the decisions of the Third one with the addition of preparing an inventory on Traditional Knowledge, particularly on known medicinal plants/their knowledge. The forum had also discussed on draft SAARC Legal Framework that stressed on benefit sharing, enforcement and duration of protection.

Hello! I know this is kind of off topic

but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting sick and tired of

Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I

would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I must show my thanks to

this writer for bailing me out of this particular

challenge. As a result of checking through the world wide web and seeing

ideas that were not helpful, I thought my life was

gone. Existing without the

answers to the problems you have

resolved by way of your main blog post is a crucial case, and the ones

that might have in a negative way

damaged my entire career if I had not noticed your
web blog. That capability and kindness in handling almost
everything was valuable. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't come across such a point like this.
I'm able to at

this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so

much for the skilled and

results-oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to propose your web sites to anyone who should get assistance

on this situation.
