The last URJCmun2019 day is here and that means it is time for UNDP committee to vote for a final resolution. Yesterday’s session finished with both resolutions presented and opened to questions, leaving the most important moment to today’s morning session.
After two amendments proposed by Senegal, the UK and French resolution was modified. At this point, it seemed that both blocks were cooperating together in order to reach an agreement that suited every country’s necessities. The debate was now closed by absolute majority and the delegates proceeded to start voting the resolutions. The first resolution voted was the one proposed by Senegal and Venezuela. As known, there must be absolute majority for a resolution to be passed; and if the first resolution is passed, there is no need to vote for the second resolution. Nevertheless, the first resolution failed: 12 votes in favour, 3 against votes and 6 abstentions.
As the first resolution had failed, it was time to vote for the second resolution, sponsored by France, Hungary, Japan and UK. Not expecting it, this resolution also failed: 12 votes in favour, 6 against and 3 abstained.
To conclude four URJCmun2019 intensive days at UNDP committee, for the Zero Hunger Challenge for 2030 delegates have not accomplished a solution to the issue. Although all countries started cooperating together and tried to write down a common resolution. As the days kept going, this utopia was getting harder to reach. Each country upheld to their own needs and was not willing to listen to suggestions. The difference increased between the ‘developed countries’ and the ‘developing countries’; or the ‘rich countries’ and the ‘poor countries’. As a consequence, this lead to the organization of two blocks that have not achieved to carry out the proposals they had made in order to eradicate world hunger and malnutrition in all its forms, and lead to a sustainable world.
Thank you and see you in URJCmun 2020!
