WIPO has been mandated to prepare patent landscape reports in areas of particular interest to developing and least developed countries, such as public health, food security, climate change and environment. For that purpose, WIPO is developing in cooperation with interested external partners, such as institutions from member States, intergovernmental or non-governmental organizations, the scope of each report. The author of each report is selected in a tendering process based on specific terms of reference.
The following Patent Landscape Reports are currently in preparation within the framework of the Development Agenda project “Developing Tools for Access to Patent Information” (document CDIP/4/6).
