WIPO Documenting Traditional Knowledge - A Toolkit

“There is growing interest in documenting the wealth of traditional knowledge (TK) [of natural resources and their use] that has been developed by indigenous peoples and local communities around the world. But documenting TK can raise important issues, especially as regards intellectual property. This Toolkit presents a range of easy-to-use checklists and other resources to help ensure that anyone considering a documentation project can address those issues effectively.”
