Intellectual Property, Agriculture and Global Food Security

Edward Elgar, 2011. 256 p.

A book written by Claudio Chiarolla about ownership of agricultural resources, the environment and food security.

Presentation :

"Claudio Chiarolla analyses developmental implications of global regulatory reforms that impact on access to agricultural knowledge, science and technology for sustainable development. Current global arrangements fall short of halving the proportion of people who suffer from hunger in accordance with the Millennium Development Goals’ framework. Therefore, the book proposes ways to achieve international equity in the way agricultural research is conducted, how its results are disseminated and the benefits shared."
