Topic A: Water Sanitation and Infrastructure
Water sanitation infrastructure is key in delivering clean water to civilians. Clean water is fundamental to life; anything less can impair other aspects of society such as health and education. Water management infrastructure is currently reaching the end of its maximum usage as it ages and it is imperative that infrastructure be updated and developed in place of them. The consequences connected to this goal must be surpassed and a solution must be found, or civilians will be left to suffer at their expense. Solutions to the problem must be sustainable or the problem will be recycled periods at a time.
Topic B: Responding to Natural Disasters: Rebuilding
Yearly, natural disasters create billions in damage, leave civilians homeless, slow national economic growth, and cause years of rebuilding towns and cities that may not be as functional as they were before. However, populated areas are still vulnerable to natural disasters and are susceptible to their damage. The cycle thus restarts with the problem never fully fixed. Measures must be taken to not only reduce the costs put into reconstruction, but to also reduce the impacts of disasters, but with costs. What should be done to promote a sustainable, stable environment all the while weighing the circumstances of exposed areas?
