Re.:                             Women and girls maternal mortality in South Africa

Submitted to:             General Assembly

Submitted by:            Sweden

Date:                           November 15, 2014

Whereas Article 25, section 1 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and his family, including food, clothing, housing, and medical care, and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age, or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.”, and

Whereas Article 25, section 2 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born or in out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.”, and

Appalled that there were 1,560 deaths in 2011 and 1,426 in 2012. More than a third of these deaths were linked to HIV. Lack of sexual and reproductive information and knowledge increases risks of unplanned pregnancies and the spread of HIV, and

Notes that experts suggest that 60% of all deaths were avoidable, and

Shocked that nearly a quarter of the avoidable deaths have been linked to late or no access to antenatal care,

Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:

  1. The United Nations will begin a program called Quest for Health (QFH) which will focus on South Africa and, if this program succeeds, will work on other infected areas such as Sub-Saharan Africa and Central Asia.
  2. QFH will work with NGOs who focus on health and education for children such as UNAIDS, WHO, UNICEF, UNV, and UNESCO.
  3. QFH will train groups of volunteers from the 5 NGOs that they have chosen to build and teach in schools, specifically sexual education in South Africa.
  4. To create QFH, we request that the UN raise dues on the 10 wealthiest countries by 1%.
  5. Quest for Health will last for five years. If after this time there has been a reduction of maternal mortality by 10%, it can be renewed for another five years. At this time it is suggested that it should spread to other regions with high maternal mortality due to HIV.

Re.:                             Drone Regulations

Submitted to:             General Assembly

Submitted by:            Pakistan

Date:                           November 15, 2014

Whereas Article 1, of the UNITED NATIONS CHARTER states, “To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace.”, and

Whereas Article 2 section 2 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.”, and

Whereas Article 3 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty, and security of person.”, and

Distressed that news organizations around the globe report varying numbers of casualties from U.S. drone strikes, and

Alarmed that there are allegations of thousands of civilian deaths by drones in the past year in countries including, but not limited to, Somalia, Yemen, and Pakistan, by the U.S, and

Aware that public displays against drone usage are occurring across the world and could possibly lead to unrest and more violence in already war torn countries, and

Concerned that more than 50 countries have access to drone technology, and

Worried that civilians across the world are being affected by drones with no official declaration of war or warning about an impending strike, and

Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:

 

  1. Create a Drone committee named Drone Activity and Regulations Council (DARC) which will oversee all country’s activities with drones, including, but not limited to, setting new regulations on drones, supporting drone regulations put in place by this resolution, and creating sanctions on countries when the regulations put in place on drones are broken.
  2. DARC members will be a rotating group of United Nations members that are selected every 2 years by a random draw. Countries may only serve on the council once every 14years. There will be 15 members on the council.
  3. When DARC is created, the following regulations will be the first put in place:
    With the formation of DARC, a country may only send out a drone once the following criteria have been met:
  • There is an 85% chance that no innocent civilian or uninvolved party will be injured. This percentage should be determined by the country sending the drone, but may be questioned by DARC if any untargeted death occurs.
  • Drones may only be sent into a country if war has officially been declared or if the country where the drones will be fired at has consented to their discharge.
  • Countries must provide a list of all drones within the country for DARC, including drones used for reconnaissance, surveillance, and other non-combative purposes.
  1. The first consequence of breaking these regulations will be to have a fine of 1/3 the country’s UN dues. The money from this fine will go to running the DARC committee. Remaining funds will go into the UNICEF and UNESCO organizations.
  2. This committee will continue as long as drones are in use.
  3. Within DARC, a subcommittee will be started which will deal directly with the validity of terrorists targeted by drones. This committee’s job will be to decide whether or not the person targeted by a country was or is an actual threat to the country in question. This will happen in one of two ways, the first being (1) the country will present their reasons for wanting to terminate this prospective terrorist, and the subcommittee will, after reviewing evidence presented by the country, decide whether they have valid reasons to target this person. The other option is, (2) after the country has successfully killed the terrorist, they must present evidence and defend their reasoning. The subcommittee will then decide, in both cases, whether the killing of the prospective terrorist is or was justified.
  4. If the person has already been killed and the committee decides the country targeting them was not justified, the country that killed the civilian will be fined 2/7 of their UN dues.
  5. This money will go to funding DARC and the subcommittee and extra money will go into UNESCO and UNICEF.
  6. The subcommittee will be composed of rotating members form all of the countries in the UN. Countries will only be allowed to participate in the council once every 10 years. There will be 11 committee members. They will each receive one vote. When voting on whether the person is a terrorist, the majority vote will make the final decision

Whereas The UN Climate Change report of November 1, 2014 came to an overwhelming consensus that “Human influence on the climate system is clear, and recent anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases are the highest in history”, and

Whereas The UN Climate Change report of November 1, 2014 came to an overwhelming consensus that “The risks associated with temperatures at or above 4°C include severe and widespread impacts on unique and threatened systems, substantial species extinction, large risks to global and regional food security, consequential constraints on common human activities, increased likelihood of triggering tipping points (critical thresholds), and limited potential for adaptation”, and

Whereas The UN Climate Change report of November 1, 2014 came to an overwhelming consensus that “Estimates of warming in 2100 without additional climate mitigation efforts are from 3.7 °C to 4.8 °C”, and

Alarmed that experts suggest that warming has already become locked in to the point where massive cuts in carbon emission will not stop it, and

Urges that Climate Change be stopped before the end of the decade

Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:

  1. Invest in 1500 flettner ships or “Albedo Yachts”. The cost will be 4 billion with an additional 200 million every year. These ships will be deployed across all of the earth’s oceans.
  2. The Albedo yachts have tiny motors that chop up the water and spray a sea mist into the air. These individual water molecules in the mist will each be micron sized droplets. The mist goes into the stratocumulus layer and changes the whiteness of the clouds. This effectively allows clouds to reflect more/less sunlight from the earth depending on the global temperature. The technology for this has already been researched and 1 full-scale boat has even been built. 
  3. The Albedo Yachts will bypass the timeframe for extinction set by Carbon emissions due to the mechanism of the ships.
  4. The ships would be built by the five UNSC nations due to their positioning and funding capabilities.
  5. The original 4 Billion dollars will be paid for by the United States Department of Energy’s Loan Guarantee. The 200 million per year would be accounted for by raising the dues of the top 10 UN paying nations by 10 percent.
  6. Albedo Yachts will last for an indefinite amount of time or at least until the world cuts reliance from fossil fuels. The Yachts come with a button that allows for shutdown in case of emergencies.
