The Model United Nations Introductory Committee (MUNIC) was established in 2015 to give beginning Model UN delegates an opportunity to learn and practice debate and parliamentary procedure in a smaller, teaching environment. MUNIC does not have a set category of topics, therefore each year the committees represented and the type of issues addressed change in order for new delegates to explore different aspects of the UN’s work. This year, MUNIC will be discussing topics from the World Health Organization, the Disarmament and International Security Committee, and the Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Committee.
Topic A: UNEP | Protecting Marine Biodiversity
The global community relies on the ocean as a source of oxygen, water, food, and other resources. As a result of plastic pollution, overfishing, and other factors, marine ecosystems are being depleted. Without preservation, oceanic biodiversity will continue to diminish.
Topic B: WHO | Blood System Strengthening in Developing Countries
Blood systems in many developing countries are not adequate to provide safe blood to patients. Strong blood systems are necessary, as unsafe blood transfusions can lead to the spread of transfusion transmitted infections.
Topic C: DISEC | The Developing Threat of Improvised Explosive Devices
The unregulated use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) has lead to mass civilian casualties in recent years. Without sufficient regulation on the production and use of IEDs, they will continue to pose a global threat.
