After a difficult session last May, the World Intellectual Property Organization committee examining the development dimension of WIPO activities will reconvene next week with a substantive agenda. In particular, delegates will assess progress of ongoing projects, consider reports on finished projects, and consider the committee’s future work. They also will consider a conference on IP and development.
The 10th session of the Committee on Development and Intellectual Property (CDIP) will meet from 12-16 November.
Delegates will examine the yearly progress report prepared by the WIPO secretariat, giving an overview on all ongoing projects [pdf]. According to WIPO, the report presents strategies adopted to implement each recommendation, and highlights the main achievements.
The projects answer to the WIPO Development Agenda, adopted by the 2007 General Assembly, which contains 45 recommendations, 19 of which were selected for immediate implementation.
