Abstract: Genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge (TK) have great potentials, and their contributions to global economy and global intellectual property regimes are enormous. They are the key resources for sustainable bioprospecting and value addition processes. The existing intellectual property (IP) laws do not entail IP rights to TK holders either at na-tional or international level. The absence of coherent and legally binding instruments to accord protection to intellectual as well as customary rights of the TK holders is a major impediment to value addition and technology transfers involving the use of genetic resources and associated TK. This paper provides an overview of the issues involved in value addition to bio-resources and protection of IPR of TK holders, takes stock of the international and national legal and policy initiatives, and suggests a few measures to promote value addition, technology transfers, and IPR protection for TK holders.
