Screening processes in OAPI countries – Chad
While there is a common understanding about the importance of GIs in OAPI Member States, some countries have not tracked their evolution. It is assumed that mapping the existing GIs in some of those countries would help build momentum at national level.
In 2022, AfrIPI recruited an expert to conduct a screening study on GIs in Chad.
The main objective of this activity is to provide Chad with a public policy document showing the existing origin-products that will be suitable for GI protection. In addition, the screening report should suggest a methodology to classify GIs in the country regarding their readiness to follow the GI path.
