WIPO Nigeria Office

The WIPO Nigeria Office (WNO) was established in Abuja in January, 2020 to promote awareness raising, training and capacity building in the field of intellectual property (IP), and across WIPO's global services in Nigeria.

The WNO strives to provide an excellent, trusted and responsive institutional sub-Saharan presence for WIPO in Nigeria, which adds clear value, efficiency and effectiveness to the Organization’s program delivery, provides timely responses to inquiries and offers support to the Organization’s cooperation and services in Nigeria.

In particular, through close engagement with the Nigerian Government and IP stakeholders in Nigeria, the office will expand the knowledge, accessibility, awareness and strategic use of IP for economic, social and cultural development in Nigeria.
