KEY ISSUES TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE DELEGATES AT DXCIMUN IN WORLD FAMOUS LEAVENWORTH, WA NESTLED IN THE CASCADE MOUNTAINS IN A BEAUTIFUL BAVARIAN TOWN AT THE WENATCHEE RIVER INSTITUTUE, WENATCHEERIVERINSTITUTE.ORG - November 21 to November 24, 2019

Delegates will explore issues focused on climate change & adaptation especially regarding resolution of water rights through various treaties which impact sustainability.  Resolution of these treaties requires comprehension of significant competing  interests, coupled with ingenuity and collaboration to balance the need of access to clean water and power, preservation of ecosystems and habitats encompassing food chains (fisheries), as well as ensuring food security through protection of farms and farming. These issues also encompass mitigation of damages caused by dams which also prevent flooding.  These balancing acts have engaged a myriad of local, state, national and international government entities and agencies, utilities and private companies along with indigenous tribes and everyday citizens from two countries, Canada and the US, regarding recommitment to and reformulation of the Columbia River Treaty.

Another set of key issues to be resolved includes how advances in Science, Technology and Innovation impact economic, social and sustainable development. In this regard, DXCIMUN delegates will consider the upcoming, September 26, 2019, High-level Dialogue on Financing for Development (HLPF) and the vital work of UN DESA. 

Additional topics which will be explored, while not necessarily the precise focus of UN DESA at the HLPF, will be the "Future of Work" in an "AI World." Another focus will be Curing Disease through Bioengineering and Genetics with advances such as CRISPR and CAR-T with significant considerations of moral and ethical issues, as well as access to such treatments for people from all economic classifications. 

One more entirely different, yet forward thinking issue, will be recommendations and resolutions regarding the potential disastrous likelihood of advanced weaponization of space and its impact on commercialization and colonization of space.  In October 2018,  the General Assembly First Committee  Delegates explored ways to build a new order for preventing celestial conflict and confrontation. UNODA, United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs, is also vital in considering how to effectively address these issues.

While broad issues such as sustainability, economic and social development considered by organizations such as one of the United Nations six (6) principal organs, the United Nations Economic and Social Council, are certainly vital, the core elements of such regarding space are significant. In this regard, rather than tackling such a diverse set of issues centered on disarmament and prevention of weaponization in a narrow and deep vertical  context, which would also encompasses the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council, delegates will learn about UNOOSA (United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs) which works to promote international cooperation in the peaceful use and exploration of space, as well as other entities.     

DELEGATES ASSIGNMENTS, OBJECTIVES AND OPPORTUNITIES:

In view of the above background, and other documents to be prepared by the DXCIMUN Secretariat, delegates will be focused on drafting resolutions which highlight how youth from a broad cross-section of backgrounds, cultures, economic differences, and global perspectives can successfully enable a more equitable and sustainable future for all people, citizens and their relevant societies. 

General Assembly Committee, various UN Council(s), the ILO and other entities, along with country matrix's will be assigned in the next few weeks. 

The main objective will be education of delegates about the different issues facing the UN,  the functions of various organs of the UN in enhancing the prospects of peace including through economic and social development leading to enhanced security, equality and resulting prosperity. Moreover, delegates may also be afforded the opportunity to advance and submit resolutions and recommendations achieved through the consensus approach for further consideration by actual UN representatives.
