fondation pour la defense de l'environnement


In general terms, this organisation based in Geneva particularly stresses international financial and trade institutions’ (IMF, WB, WTO) criticism, as well as the currently predominant role of multinational and transnational companies. Support was granted to publish the book “La propriété intellectuelle contre la biodiversité ?” (Intellectual property against biodiversity?). The aim of this book is to describe in what ways imposing intellectual property rights on resources or traditional knowledge that involve biodiversity leads to tragic consequences for humanity.
