Issues Relating to the Relationship between TRIPS and CBD
The mandate of the Doha Declaration under Paragraph 19 entrusts the TRIPS council to investigate inter alia the issues relating to the relationship between the TRIPS Agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). India is one among the countries that stood for a harmonised operation of the TRIPS and the CBD right from the beginning of coming into force of the two agreements. In the TRIPS Council, the Trade Policy division of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry is representing the Government of India on this issue. The Trade Policy Division sanctioned a project to the Centre for IPR Studies, HRD Chair on IPR to support it in terms of policy formation on this issue during the period 2003-05. Ms. Prabha S. Nair was assisting the HRD Chair as the Research Associate in drafting the papers to be submitted to the Government of India.
