|Title:||Effective System of Plant Variety Protection in Responding to Challenges of a Changing World: UPOV Perspective|
Plant variety protection
|Abstract:||The UPOV Convention was adopted in 1961, and it entered into force in 1968. The Convention aims at encouraging innovation in the field of plant breeding. It provides a legal framework and system of implementation of plant variety protection and is the only internationally harmonized, effective <i>sui generis</i> system of plant variety protection. The UPOV Convention was amended in 1972, 1978 and 1991. UPOV had 68 members as on 4 November 2010, and the numbers continue to expand. The impact study carried out by an <i style="">ad hoc</i> working group, and published by UPOV has shown the benefits of an effective <i>sui generis</i> system of plant variety protection.<u></u>|
