High-level seminar in the ‘Mountain Kingdom’ agrees national action plan
for ratification of the Marrakesh Treaty

On 12-13 September 2017, over 50 participants from eight countries met in
Lesotho, the high-altitude kingdom in southern Africa, to advance adoption
of the Marrakesh Treaty for persons with print disabilities.

The seminar, titled ‘Ending the book famine in Africa: libraries and the
promise of the Marrakesh Treaty’, was organized by EIFL in cooperation with
the Lesotho Library Consortium (LELICO)
<http://www.eifl.net/country/lesotho> and the Lesotho Registrar General's
Office.

Ministers and Members of Parliament in Lesotho, inter-governmental
organizations, copyright experts, teachers, librarians, and representatives
of people living with disability deliberated on plans for ratification of
the Marrakesh Treaty in Lesotho, and shared best practices in Africa for
implementing the Treaty into national copyright law.
