The Second Libyan Civil War: Resolving Conflicts among Factions

Double-Delegate - Advanced Level

Libya’s second civil war, which erupted in mid-2014 after the fall of Muhammad Gaddafi regime, is an ongoing conflict amongst Libya’s political factions. The conflict is believed to be caused by political fragmentations due to the weak and fractured elected government, as well as parties seeking control over territories and oils. Following the government’s fragmentations, control over the country was split with different forces governing different areas throughout Libya. To make matter worse, there are foreign interventions and interests involved that further perpetuate the dissension. The war is far way complicated than what the world witnessed in the surface, and it’s time for delegates to help the Libyan retain their peace and security. 

Modernizing Food Systems to Maintain Global Food Biodiversity

Single Delegate - Beginner Level

Biodiversity is an essential, yet often overlooked aspect for the sustainability and resilience of our food system. However, we often neglect how the industrialization and globalization of food have narrowed the food species we produce and consume, therefore limiting our food biodiversity. Multi-sectorial aspects contribute to the gradual loss of food biodiversity which might complicate it any further. FAO recognizes the vital role of traditional agriculture and smallholder farmers in maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem balance. However, they are under pressure from lack of economic returns, poverty, limited markets, and the growing control of corporations. It is needed to discuss how to enhance these traditional food systems to respond to modern demands, and support them through political, financial, and technical means.

Sustainable Consumption and Production of Natural Resources
Single Delegate  - Intermediate Level

The exploitation of natural resources becomes an imminent threat to our society nowadays. The negative externalities from irresponsible consumption and production activities create detrimental harm to our ecosystem. This happens to renewable and non-renewable sources. For instance, illegal logging and fishing activities without considering the environmental impact assessment disrupt the sustainability of the stocks. Fish and tree must reach its maturity age before being harvested.

Even though regulations have been established, natural resources are still being exploited. UNESCAP has a big role in giving policy recommendation since most of the landscape in Asia-Pacific region is rich with natural resources. However, to ensure that these countries do not plunge into a “resource-curse” situation, accountability and improvement on the management and system is completely necessary.

Restoring the Environmental Damage Generated by the Mining Industry

Single Delegate - Intermediate Level

Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals and other geological materials of economic value from deposits on the Earth. Mining activities continuously degrade the environment by inducing loss of biodiversity, soil erosion, and contamination of surface water, groundwater, and soil. Understanding that there are dire needs for energy which are provided by materials found through mining, it accentuates the demand to harmonize mining activities and environmental conservation. Generally, mining activities conducted by private or state industries are fueled by economic incentives. Thus, it becomes an inherent responsibility for those industries to restore the condition of the environment in the vicinity of their operation.

Quest for an Answer: Western Sahara's Question

Single Delegate - Beginner Level

Decolonization is in the name of SPECPOL and Western Sahara is one of the most puzzling phenomena the Fourth Committee ever faced and never solved until now. The deadlock situation to resolve the territorial dispute remained as a huge black mark in SPECPOL's history. The effort to break the deadlock, either through learning from the past or creating a groundbreaking path to resolve this puzzle, remains as one of the sole agenda on SPECPOL every single year. With the current situation where there’s no peace treaty signed between the involved actors, SPECPOL is in the position to act in resolving and answering the questions.
