ARTICLE 24 -- ADVISORY PANEL ON RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT or SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL ADVISORY COUNCIL:
version of this article was merged from three alternatives proposed
by delegates at INCD-3. Its rationale stems from the need to
provide technical advice and expertise to the Conference of the
Parties. The EU supports this version, while Brazil and other Latin
American countries have expressed their preference for the second
version, a Scientific and Technological Advisory Council. Both
versions remain bracketed.
