Intellectual Property Rights and Food Security Hardback
Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) play an important role in the struggle for food security and encouraging agricultural research and development.
This book examines these roles as well as the international relationship between IPRs, agricultural biotechnology, access to biological resources, food security and globalisation, paying particular attention to proposals for the protection of Farmers' Rights, traditional knowledge, GM crops and the impact of competition laws.
It proposes a number of recommendations for action in deploying IPRs in order to reach greater food security globally.
