Model Law for Protection of Traditional Ecological Knowledge

Model Law for Protection of Traditional Ecological Knowledge.  Unknown Source.  Available Through GRAIN Website.

GRAIN is a small international non-profit organisation that works to support small farmers and social movements in their struggles for community-controlled and biodiversity-based food systems. This model law which is uploaded through their website can be used by lawyers or managers who wish to create a law for the protection of traditional ecological knowledge (TEK).

This act is designed to prevent un-authorised use of TEK, innovations, and practices and to ensure equitable sharing of benefits derived from the use of such knowledge, innovations and practices.
