Put yourselves in the shoes of an LDC official charged with TRIPS implementation on top of their day job...

  • What is the process – in capital and in Geneva?
  • What do you want to achieve? Where do you start?
  • Who are your stakeholders and how do you co-ordinate them? What are the national priorities and specific sectoral issues?
  • What lessons can you learn from others? What tools & knowledge databases can you tap?
  • What external assistance will be available and how do you access it? How to develop “bankable projects”?
slide4

Purpose of the WTO LDC guidebook project – the concept

  • The purpose of the guidebook project is to support LDC in undertaking and co-ordinating needs assessment and technical assistance activities relating to TRIPS
  • The guidebook project will aim to structure WTO support to LDCs within an end-to-end approach, building on and signposting existing resources toolkits and knowledge and technical assistance resources
  • The overall aim is to make the needs assessment process easier, faster, and more productive for LDCs and their development partners
slide5

What will the LDC guidebook cover ?

  • Outline TRIPS Council 2005 Decision and explain the process
  • Describe interplay between development objectives and IP in the national development context, sectoral examples & case studies
  • Identify the legal and regulatory structures relevant to TRIPS implementation and development
  • Highlight key issues, possible strategies and approaches, drawing on experience and lessons from past needs assessments
  • Signpost available toolkits, knowledge resources and assistance programmes to be taken into consideration – WTO notifications, WIPO, WCO, UNCTAD, World Bank, EC etc
slide6

What will the LDC guidebook look like?

  • Intention is to go for user-friendly, web-based and print copy formats suitable for future updates and expansion
  • A guidebook and map in two dimensions:
    • Overall support for the process from end-to-end (birds eye view)
    • Signposting and facilitating access to more in-depth tools, knowledge and resources (dig-down deep view)
  • This approach will allow for easy dissemination to LDCs, supported by regional workshops but also be flexible enough to address specific needs in depth
