The IPA has always stressed the need for capacity building of the publishing and creative infrastructure in developing nations, and Africa is a continent where many countries are crying out for this kind of intervention. In the developed world, trade publishing (books that one buys in bookshops) is often predominant, but in the developing world it is educational publishing that usually takes the lead. And this is as it should be, with education of a country’s population being the surest first step in the evolution of a modern, self-sufficient society.

On Friday, 13 October 2017 at the Frankfurt Book Fair, the Educational Publishers Forum held its annual open meeting. Despite the date, we had no bad luck at all. On the contrary! The meeting was one of our most successful with over 50 people in the audience and more questions than ever.

The IPA-led Educational Publishers Forum (EPF) has pledged its full support for an ambitious World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) plan to bolster the publishing industries of developing countries to help deliver on UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4); education.

Educational publishers from around the world showed delegates at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) today how copyright has enabled them to invest in the digital technology that is shaping the future of school-age learning.
