Traditional Knowledge & the UN

How are questions related to traditional knowledge being considered in intergovernmental processes?

This section provides an overview of how issues relating to traditional knowledge are being addressed treated in relevant international processes. Access to and utilization of traditional knowledge by outsiders raises a number of complex legal and ethical issues, including questions concerning land tenure, the ownership of genetic resources, intellectual property rights and equitable sharing of benefits arising. These issues, with their implications for social justice and cultural and biological diversity, are being addressed under a cluster of international organizations and instruments. Follow each link below for a precis of the organisation's activities relevant to TK.
