MSMUN 2016, Day 2

ISSUE 2 2016

Check out some extra committee coverage below, by our very own Dheer Shah!

Ecology Committee

The resolution of Bangladesh

The prevention of ocean acidification in order to establish better survival and reproduction of the marine life under harsh environmental conditions

Lobbying is sometimes hard work, but Arpit Mehta has really ensured that countries in the ecology committee vote for his resolution. Ocean acidification is arguably one of the most serious threats facing the oceans and humans this century.

Ocean acidification is not a symptom of climate change. Rather, it is a threat concurrent with climate change and caused by a common root problem: ongoing anthropogenic CO2 emissions. It is a serious global challenge of unprecedented scale and importance that requires immediate action.

Mehta is a young boy who is 14 years old, who has been given the role of an ambassador in the Ecology Committee for Bangladesh. He has talked about ocean acidification in order to establish better survival and reproduction of the marine life under harsh environmental conditions.

The ocean acidification process is still going on as it is not symptomatic of climate change.

Arpit Mehta is likely to pass this resolution as his speech for lobbying opened Papua New Guinea’s eyes.
