ARTICLE 7 -- PRIORITY TO AFRICA:

At the beginning of this session, the G-77 and China proposed a new sentence regarding the provision of financial resources, technical assistance and other forms of support to assist affected African countries. This proposal was eventually deleted and only one word in this article remains bracketed: "In implementing the provisions of this Convention, the Parties shall give priority to affected African countries...while not neglecting other affected [developing] regions."
