I would be interested in using this image in a publication about intellectual property in Africa. If someone could be in contact with me that would be great.

Story
Tagline
African news and analysis from the United Nations
Introduction
The Africa Renewal information programme, produced by the Africa Section of the United Nations Department of Public Information, provides up-to-date information and analysis of the major economic and development challenges facing Africa today.

The programme produces the renowned magazine, Africa Renewal (formerly Africa Recovery) and the affiliated website www.un.org/africarenewal. It aspires to promote the work of the United Nations, Africa and the international community to bring peace and development to Africa.

Africa Renewal reports on and examines the many different aspects of the UN's involvement in Africa, especially within the framework of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD). It works closely with the many UN agencies and offices dealing with African issues, including the UN Economic Commission for Africa and the Office of the Special Adviser on Africa.
