World Trade Organization (WTO)
Topic : Discussing Barriers and Benefits of International Trade and Sustainable Economies between Developed and Developing Countries.
Integration into the world economy has proven a powerful means for countries to promote economic growth, development, and poverty reduction. Over the past 20 years, the growth of world trade has averaged 6 percent per year, twice as fast as world output. The resulting integration of the world economy has raised living standards around the world. Most developing countries have shared in this prosperity; in some, incomes have risen dramatically, but progress has been less rapid for many other countries. The poorest countries have seen their share of world trade declining substantially, and without lowering their own barriers to trade, they risk further marginalization. This council will discuss how these issues can be addressed as we move closer to 2030 and something must seriously be done in order to achieve Goal 10: Reduced Inequality of the SDGs.
World Food Programme (WFP)
Topic : Achieving Zero Hunger to Solve Malnutrition
Everyday too many men and women across the globe struggle to feed their children a nutritious meal. In a world where we produce enough food to feed everyone, 821 million people – one in nine – still go to bed on an empty stomach each night. Even more – one in three – suffer from some form of malnutrition. The consequence of this is not only suffering and poor health but also slow progress in many other areas of development like education and employment. Goal 2 of the SDGs: Zero Hunger – pledges to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. The WFP will have to look into this and discuss how they plan to go about it as time is running out.
International Monetary Fund (IMF)
Topic : IMF Conditionality on Loans and its Role in the Global and Economic Financial System.
When a country borrows from the IMF, its government agrees to adjust its economic policies to overcome the problems that led it to seek financial aid. These policy adjustments are conditions for IMF loans and serve to ensure that the country will be able to repay the IMF. This system of conditionality is designed to promote national ownership of strong and effective policies. Through these borrowings, the IMF does play a big role in global economy stability. This council will be discussing on improved conditionality to ensure global economic and social stability.
World Health Organization (WHO)
Topic : Addressing the Access Gap in the Commercialization of Medical Technologies
Successful health care delivery requires effective medical devices as tools for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. Despite the exponential growth of scientific and technological development, low- and middle-income countries are still largely excluded from access to appropriate and affordable health technologies. This committee will discuss how to reduce the access gap to medical technologies by the means of facilitation and equitable access to health care for all in order to achieve a healthier world as a whole.
