Hey UNEP delegates!
We hope you are as excited for this committee as we are! Our first topic is titled “Promoting Environmental Justice” and deals with ensuring that everyone receives equal protection from threats posed by the environment. Our second topic is “Building Sustainable Megacities.” This topic discusses the implications of cities with populations of over 10 million people, including environmental and public health issues.
These issues are especially relevant today with a rapidly growing global population and an increased number of people relocating from rural areas to urban ones. This article considers the environmental and economic consequences of megacity growth and the challenges posed by urbanization: http://www.cnbc.com/2014/03/
