Development Agenda for WIPO
The WIPO Development Agenda aims to ensure that development considerations form an integral part of WIPO’s work. As such, it is a cross-cutting issue which touches upon all sectors of the Organization.
When formally establishing the Development Agenda in October 2007, the WIPO General Assembly adopted a set of 45 recommendations to enhance the development dimension of the Organization’s activities. The recommendations are divided into six clusters. In addition to the adoption of the WIPO Development Agenda, Members States also approved a recommendation to establish a Committee on Development and Intellectual Property (CDIP).
