WIPO's Strategic Goals

WIPO's nine strategic goals were adopted by our member states in December 2008 in the first phase of a comprehensive strategic realignment process within the Organization. They reflect the evolving challenges for WIPO and for intellectual property (IP) in today’s rapidly changing environment:

  • Balanced Evolution of the International Normative Framework for IP
  • Provision of Premier Global IP Services
  • Facilitating the Use of IP for Development
  • Coordination and Development of Global IP Infrastructure
  • World Reference Source for IP Information and Analysis
  • International Cooperation on Building Respect for IP
  • Addressing IP in Relation to Global Policy Issues
  • A Responsive Communications Interface between WIPO, its Member States and All Stakeholders
  • An Efficient Administrative and Financial Support Structure to Enable WIPO to Deliver its Programs

The strategic goals provide the framework for WIPO's six year medium term strategic plan (2016 - 2021) PDF, WIPO's six year Medium Term Strategic Plan (2010 - 2015) and for the biennial program and budget.
