Intellectual Property Rights and Climate Change: Interpreting the Trips Agreement for Environmentally Sound Technologies

As the world confronts global warming, there is a growing consensus that the TRIPS Agreement could be a more effective instrument for mitigating climate change. In this innovative work, Wei Zhuang systematically examines the contextual elements that can be used in the interpretation of the TRIPS Agreement to enhance innovation and the transfer of environmentally sound technologies. Zhuang proposes a balanced and pro-competitive method of interpretation that could be pursued in various ways, including a Declaration on Intellectual Property Rights and Climate Change.

This comprehensive, multidisciplinary study will help academics and policymakers improve their understanding of the contemporary international legal regimes governing intellectual property rights and the transfer of environmentally sound technologies. It also offers practical guidance for further developing a legal system capable of responding to the challenges posed by climate change.
