Project Summary

The United States and project co-sponsors propose holding a workshop on plant variety protection during the 2016 SOM3 meetings in August 2016 in Lima, Peru.

Plant variety protection is a form of intellectual property that plays a key role in incentivizing the development of new varieties of plants and reducing barriers to trade in plant varieties.  The workshop would focus on the 1991 Act of the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV 1991), which is the current international convention for this field.  It would include presentations on key features of UPOV 1991, as well as case studies from developing APEC Economies and SMEs on how they have benefited from this system.

The target audience would include government experts and policy makers from intellectual property and agriculture agencies, plant breeders and growers, trade association representatives, and academics.
