ARTICLE 24 -- ADVISORY PANEL ON RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT or SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL ADVISORY COUNCIL:

The first 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.
