Décrivez les principales caractéristiques de la politique/mesure: 

Despite the government and civil society efforts to implement Intellectual Property rights, the Rwandan environment is not yet conducive for effective implementation and will remain so as long as all stakeholders' role and responsibilities are not clarified and all official documents and laws concerning IP rights are not easily accessible to all. This project provides a platform for the stakeholders working on the protection of IP rights to develop together a strategic action to implement the IP law.
