World Intellectual Property Organization: Green Technology Book

WIPO GREEN, an interactive marketplace that connects technology and service providers with those seeking innovative solutions, was established by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in 2013. There is even a specific Climate Change and Intellectual Property portal.


The latest edition of the Green Technology Book presents technological trends, latest innovations and solutions to combat climate-change impact on agriculture and forestry (Chapter 3), the water sector (Chapter 4) and cities (Chapter 5). The report categorizes the technologies as "proven", "frontier" and "horizon". Essential in achieving the Paris Agreement’s goals, the book will be officially launched at the upcoming COP28 in Dubai.


Countries that consistently score highest in the annual WIPO Global Innovation Index are Finland, Germany, Netherlands, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States.


Interesting to quote the reports's conclusion and recommendations (Chapter 6)

"Patent analyses indicate that it originates in a few developed countries and that innovation transfer is modest ... This could lead to a discrepancy between where technologies are developed and where they are needed most. But patents do not always reflect innovation on the ground. Adaptation technologies from developing countries seem to be far less visible. This may be because they are simpler, less commercially oriented and developed with a local context in mind. However, such solutions may be exactly what is needed in many other places. Therefore there may be a need for a stronger exposure of adaptation technologies from developing countries."
