United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP)* Director: Renee Hancock
The United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) is an agency of the United Nations that serves to educate, advocate, and create global environmental goals, policy and practice guidelines, and achievable infrastructure. This dual-delegation assembly committee will collaboratively work to find solutions and diplomatic approaches of the two topics that are economically feasible and suit the environments of each represented state. Topic 1 is Preventing and Addressing Plastic and Pathogenic Pollution in Global Waterways. The goals of this topic are to highlight the dangerous levels of current pollution in waterways, create a variety of reactive and proactive long-term solutions, and make efforts towards the creation of sturdy and affordable infrastructure to combat both types of pollution. Topic 2 is Environmental Sustainability in Active and Post-Conflict Zones. This topic is for delegates to address and create realistic and substantive solutions towards achieving greater sustainability and livable environments of conflict areas. It is important that, for both topics, the resolutions to the issues at hand are fact-based, achievable in the areas proposed to, and environmentally-sound. Each environmental issue should be met with great concern and diplomatic methods of resolve, proving that we can learn from our mistakes and strive for a cleaner tomorrow.
