Issue B: Tackling hunger problems in LEDCs to improve the standards of education
Committee: Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)
Sponsoring countries: Sudan, Namibia

The Economic and Social Council,

Alarmed that the hunger problem further increases,

Acknowledging that education is to be neglected in such circumstances

Recognising that the third world countries can never develop, when hunger crisis are not stopped

Concerned with children who are not able to receive a good education in order to improve their living standards

Recognising that poverty plays an important role, which limits the opportunities for proper education

Confident that with supplying aid and goods to these countries, the problems can be tackled step by step

Convinced that the resolution to the crisis requires devotion and full contribution from all members of the General Assembly,

Aims to highlight the dire situation in countries similar to Sudan and Namibia involving sub-par standards of education,

Deeply disturbed by the fact that the essential needs of people are not being met,

that said alarming standards of education are caused by failure to meet essential needs of people, e.g. food issues,

Observing that education standards can improve if the elementary needs of people, such as food and shelter, can be met,

that once basic needs are met, there is more room for further development involving education,

1. Urges the more financially developed countries to consider providing financial aid for food bugets as an investment;
a. Collaboration between LEDCs and MEDCs,
b. Healthier and more food from secure sources may significantly reduce the demand for healthcare in countries like Sudan,
2. Requests other LEDCs to consider and sponsor this resolution;
3. Requests that significant funding be donated to the World Food Programme (WFP);
a. To make a significant investement in larger volumes and better quality goods,
b. To facilitate a wider distribution of food in these countries
4. Recommends that part of the funding be donated to facilitating agricultural technology.
5. As corruption is still a major issue, one should invest money directly into educational schemes and avoid governmental interference.
a. At the moment Namibia is rated with 4 on the Transparency International Corruption Perception Index.
b. Support the ACC (Anti-Corruption Commission) to further improve their rating.
6. Focus on what they are good in producing increase these products and increase the exports in this.
a. Agriculture (GDP 5-6%)
b. Fishing (GDP 3%)
c. Manufacturing sector (GDP 12.5%)
7. Ensure that, by 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling
a. Net enrolment ratio in primary education

b. Proportion of pupils starting grade 1 who reach last grade of primary

c. Literacy rate of 15-24 year-olds, women and men

The delegation of the Russian Federation agrees with the given resolution and it's points, however we feel the need for the Sudanese delegation to clarify and build on the given resolution, as well as improve the structure, grammar and spelling of the resolution in certain areas.

Point 1

Sudanese Delegation wrote:1. Urges the more financially developed countries to consider providing financial aid for food budgets as an investment
The Russian delegation would like to know what the Sudanese delegation is suggesting by "investment". This clause is vague. Is the Sudanese delegation implying a profit-based investment from foreign nations? Please clarify.

Point 2

Sudanese Delegation wrote:3. Requests that significant funding be donated to the World Food Programme (WFP)
The Russian delegation does not particularly agree with this clause. The WFP, as of recent, deals largely with humanitarian aid in crisis areas, such as the current situation in Haiti. This would hardly apply to the target countries in mind. The method of delivery is pure transport of foodstuffs, as opposed to financial aid. This, as all my fellow delegates know, is problematic for local agriculture industry and raw airdropping of food lowers food prices, decreasing profit dramatically for local farmers, discouraging them from growing food. Hence, the WFP's conveyance of food is not a good means to support poverty-stricken countries. The Russian delegation believes that financial aid would be a more suitable way to improve the hunger situation(and to an extent, school enrollment), whilst maintaining domestic agricultural stability.

Point 3

The Russian Delegation suggests an amendment, detailing the need to reduce the need for countries to cash-crop. Farmers should instead improve towards subsistence in domestic production of agriculture. This would increase the stability of the local food supply. Following this course of action, nations currently receiving aid would be able to work towards being less reliant on aid to increase school enrollment.

We won the cold war.
