ICTSD is holding a dialogue on "Reviewing the implementation of the WIPO Development Agenda: Issues and Challenges" on 13th May (14:00 -17:00) at the CCV, 9-11 Rue Varembe 1211, Geneva.

The dialogue aims to examine more closely the numerous issues and challenges facing a review of the implementation of the 2007 WIPO DA recommendations in light of the lessons learned from similar international processes and experiences in the areas of trade and development (such as the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, Aid for Trade and the MDGs). It will also reflect on the parameters for carrying out an effective review of the implementation of the WIPO DA recommendations, which was mandated by the 2010 WIPO General Assembly decision establishing  the Coordination Mechanism to monitor and assess such implementation.

Speakers include: Irfan Baloch, Director, Development Agenda Coordination Division, WIPO; William Hynes, Policy Analyst, Development Co-operation Directorate, OECD; James Edwin, Coordinator, Monitoring and Evaluation, EIF Executive Secretariat, WTO;  Adam Rogers, Senior Advisor and Head of Unit, UNDP Office in Geneva; Professor Ruth Okediji, University of Minnesota Law School; Mokhtar Warida, Counsellor, Permanent Mission of Egypt and Karin Ferriter, IP Attaché, U.S. Mission.
