Intellectual Property Rights and Food Security
At the time of the first World Food Summit in 1996 it was estimated that more than 800 million people did not have enough food to meet their basic nutritional needs. The steep rise in global food prices has exacerbated the situation, causing the 2008 G8 Hokkaido Toyako Summit to issue a Statement on Food Security which expressed concern that global food security was under a severe threat. The root cause of food insecurity is poverty. Trade liberalization is part of the long-term solution, as are improvements in agricultural productivity. This book examines the contribution which intellectual property rights can make in the struggle for food security in developing countries.
