Climate Change and Global Security
The effects of climate change on the world’s landscape often lead to geopolitical changes threatening to destabilize already vulnerable regions. The shortage of natural resources undermines the capacity of nations to govern themselves. Also, serves as a catalyst for future conflicts. Such conditions have already arisen and are a daily reality for millions of people. Further, in the Lake Chad Basin, South Sudan, Mali or Syria. United Nations Security Council is increasingly under pressure to address climate change. Yet disagreements over Council’s mandate as well as its current mode of operation hinder its ability to take action. What steps shall the United Nations Security Council undertake in order to tackle climate change, one of humanity’s greatest challenges in the 21st century?
This title might quite accurately describe your experience. In real United Nations, representatives of all countries in the world would meet in committees. Further, in order to discuss serious matters, such as humanitarian help or disarmament in conflict areas. In this (simulated) case, all participants assume the roles of delegates of chosen countries. Further, represent their stance on certain issues. To give an example: Based on the topics I am passionate about and my interests I will choose a committee. For my next step, I can choose for example Canda, as it is my favorite country. During the negotiations, I will be representing the interests of Canada, even if they go against the interest of other delegates.
