These studies have been commissioned under the Innovation for Human Development pillar of work undertaken by the Inclusive Globalization Cluster, Poverty Group, BDP. The premise of this work is that enhanced participation, access for all and sustainable fi nancing for innovation constitute the three dimensions of inclusive innovation. Innovation is sustainable only when it develops with knowledge from all (technical, scientifi c and cultural); benefi ts all and is accompanied by a balanced incentive mechanism.

The Intellectual Property Impact studies under this pillar seek to understand linkages between expansive intellectual property rights and their impacts over human development objectives in key areas such as health, food security, biodiversity, climate change, human rights, gender and traditional knowledge.
