Specialized- UN Framework Convention on Climate Change
In 1992, the United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change sought to stabilize the concentration of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere to mitigate anthropogenic interference with the climate. Global climate change has accompanied industrialization and modernization as a dangerous companion, resulting in the emission of greenhouse gasses and additional contaminatinants contributing to air pollution. This air pollution has demonstrated its devastating impacts on population health, raising the rates of preventable illnesses despite efforts to lower carbon emissions. Notable work has been done to address the increasing pollution to the air, yet the eradication of detrimental effects to health in consequence of climate change requires a combined effort by member states. Additionally, global climate change has resulted in the intensification of the severity of natural disasters, as the environment is becoming increasingly unstable, and by extension, unpredictable. The damages caused by these natural disasters have resounding effects, and have raised concern for the future of the intersectionality of mankind and the natural environment. In this committee, delegates are tasked with the responsibility of implementing effective and unprecedented solutions to fight these two issues, while promoting the ideals of international cooperation.
