A few days ago, a library user requested access to a FAO document on geographical indications. One catch: the title of the document was unknown.
In the end, we discovered that the item in question was "Linking people, places and products: a guide for promoting quality linked to geographical origin and sustainable Geographical Indications." It was jointly produced in 2009 by FAO and SINER-GI.
The publication came from a program on origin-linked quality launched by FAO in 2007. The program's goal is to contribute to rural development by assisting member countries and stakeholders in the implementation of origin-based quality schemes, at institutional and producer level that are tailored to individual economic, social and cultural contexts.
