Development Agenda for WIPO
The WIPO Development Agenda ensures that development considerations form an integral part of WIPO's work. The effective implementation of the Development Agenda, including the mainstreaming of its recommendations into our substantive programs, is a key priority. The adoption of the Development Agenda was an important milestone for WIPO.
The Agenda was formally established by WIPO's member states in 2007, in a decision which included the adoption of 45 Development Agenda recommendations, grouped into six clusters, and the establishment of a Committee on Development and Intellectual Property (CDIP).
Development Agenda (DA) Projects
International Conference on IP and Development: Innovation in Green Technologies for Sustainable Development (November 22 and 23, 2022)
Next International Conference on IP and Innovation for Sustainable Agriculture in 2023.
The actions undertaken to implement the Development Agenda recommendations range from practical projects and activities, to the application of certain principles and objectives to our work.
The online searchable Catalogue provides structured and detailed information on all DA projects, reports and outputs (studies, guides, databases). The Catalogue also allows users to filter their search by different criteria, which includes IP rights, IP themes, project status, key words, etc.
The Guidebook for the preparation, implementation and evaluation of DA projects provides information on the entire project lifecycle: preparation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. The Guidebook is part of a support package prepared for Member State representatives, WIPO staff contributing to DA projects at any stage of its lifecycle, and DA project evaluators.
