The impact of climate change on genetic patents

The climate change imposes highly g pressures on agriculture meanwhile more food is required to increase the world's population. However, that led to relised genetic as a technological response to these difficulties. DNA modification of major crop groups results in plants that are more resistant to drought, salinity, and pests. Patenting climate-friendly DNA provides an opportunity to protect investment in the exploitation of this DNA. The international intellectual property rights system based on the TRIPS Agreement of the World Trade Organization makes it possible to obtain patents for this DNA worldwide. In practice, patenting is limited to a relatively small group of life sciences companies. This market concentration has important implications for agricultural policies, especially for developing countries. This article analyzes these issues and concludes that the impact of patenting on food security has become as important as the impact of patenting on access to medicines.
