Dear Colleagues, 

I am writing to advise you that the report of the independent External Review of WIPO Technical Assistance in the Area of Cooperation for Development has been published on WIPO's website. The Report was conducted at the request of WIPO for submission to the WIPO Committee on Development and Intellectual Property (CDIP) in response to WIPO Development Agenda Recommendation 41.  The independent review was undertaken by myself and Dr. Santiago Roca, Professor of Economics at the ESAN Graduate School of Business in Lima, Peru.

The final report of our Review was posted to the site in early September and is scheduled for discussion by WIPO Member States and stakeholders at next week's CDIP Meeting (14-18 November 2011). With the document code CDIP/8/INF/1, it can be downloaded in word or PDF format at the following link: http://www.wipo.int/meetings/en/details.jsp?meeting_id=22206

The summary and recommendations have been translated by WIPO and are also available in French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic and Chinese at the same site.

With best regards,



Dr. Carolyn Deere Birkbeck
