Chapter 10 (Page no: 138)

Geographical indications in developing countries.

This chapter examines the continued development of geographical indications (GIs) at an international level, particularly in developing countries. The first part looks at the issues at stake, and at the reasons why GIs have acquired a widely shared empirical foundation, even though their legal definition was initiated within a specific historical and geographical context. This situation has triggered the apparently paradoxical development in which the recognition of origin products goes hand in hand with and fits in with globalization. The second part of the chapter examines the potential of and the issues involved in using the concept of GIs in developing countries; four key points are underlined: the role of producer organizations, consumers' expectations, guarantee schemes and the capacities of states and local institutions. The third part of the chapter highlights several GI options and the issues at stake in developing countries, based on examples from Benin (cassava-based gari missè), Costa Rica (arabica coffee), Mexico (tequila) and South Africa (rooibos tea). The conclusion mentions possible future scenarios for GIs in countries in the South.
