About the Book

This practical book is the first wide-ranging guide to the key issues of intellectual property and ownership, genetics, biodiversity and food security. Proceeding from an introduction and overview of the issues, comprehensive chapters cover negotiations and instruments in the World Trade Organization, Convention on Biological Diversity, UN Food and Agriculture Organization, World Intellectual Property Organization, the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants and various other international bodies.

This guide is an essential tool for everyone involved in shaping the future of food including negotiators, activists, environmentalists, food and intellectual property researchers, companies, farmer groups and all others affected by global negotiations.
