The UNCTAD Secretariat implements a work programme on the development dimensions of intellectual property (IP) rights in response to a mandate  from Member States at the Ministerial Conference in Nairobi, Kenya (2016), and requests in the WIPO Development Agenda and the World Health Assembly´s Resolution 61.21 on a Global Strategy and Plan of Action on Public Health, Innovation and Intellectual Property.

The IP programme conducts research and analysis on trade and development aspects of IP, provides request-based technical assistance and facilitates consensus-building in international discussions on issues at the interface of investment and intellectual property.
