Documenting traditional knowledge - A Toolkit


There is growing interest in documenting the wealth of traditional knowledge (TK) that has been developed by indigenous peoples and local communities around the world. But documenting TK can raise important issues, especially as regards intellectual property. This Toolkit presents a range of easy-to-use checklists and other resources to help ensure that anyone considering a documentation project can address those issues effectively.

Navigating traditional knowledge and intellectual property - The adventures of the Yakuanoi


Although the intellectual property (IP) system can be used to promote and protect traditional knowledge (TK) (knowledge that has ancient roots and is often oral), it is not always protected by the conventional IP system. WIPO has produced a 4-minute animation, telling the story of the Yakuanoi people – a fictitious indigenous community – as they navigate through the key issues regarding IP and TK.
