IP Management Clinic Will Focus on Agriculture

WIPO and Sidley Austin’s Emerging Enterprises Pro Bono Program are joining forces to help Micro, Small and Medium Size Enterprises (MSMEs) who are developing solutions for the agriculture sector that enhance food security or reduce pollution, water use or carbon emissions. Companies selected to take part in the IP Management Clinic will benefit from a program of activities spread over five months, specifically designed to address their IP management needs, as determined in the application process. They will receive advice on intellectual properties (IP) management strategies and guidance on how the IP system can be used to make their products, services or business model more competitive in today’s market.
To participate, Micro or SMEs must meet some criteria like having; an innovative green product or technology and a clear business model, a technology that is relevant to the agricultural industry, at least one registered IP right, an entrepreneurial team (a minimum of 3 people), in addition to other criteria.
It should be noted that The IP Management Clinic is a program that aims to help enterprises to better utilize IP as part of their business strategies.

The Priorities for UN Climate Change Conference COP27

The conference that was held in November 2022, at Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, defined five priorities, which can be briefed as following; First, COP27 closed with a breakthrough agreement to provide loss and damage funding for vulnerable countries hit hard by floods, droughts and other climate disasters. This was widely lauded as a historic decision, because for the first time countries did recognize the need for finance to respond to loss and damage associated with the catastrophic effects of climate change, and ultimately agreed to establish a fund. Second, it intended to keep 1.5°C within reach, which requires global greenhouse gas emissions to peak before 2025 and to be reduced by 43% by 2030. This means the global economy must “mitigate” climate change – in other words, countries must reduce or prevent the emission of greenhouse gases to get where they need to be by 2030. Third, hold businesses and institutions to account; this new phase of implementation also means a new focus on accountability when it comes to the commitments made by sectors, businesses and institutions, so the transparency of their commitments will be a priority of UN Climate Change in 2023. Fourth, providing financial support for developing countries; finance is at the heart of all what the world is doing to combat climate change. As a result, mitigation, adaptation, loss and damage, climate technology – all of it requires sufficient funds to function properly and to yield the desired results. Finally, making the pivot toward implementation, which is an important step, because climate pledges aren’t worth the paper they’re written on if they aren’t taken off the page and turned into concrete action.
