Question of: Reducing the Vulnerability of LEDCs Through Sustainable Development

Submitted by: Indonesia

Recognizing that doing nothing to solve the vulnerability of LEDCs (Less Economically Developed Countries) would lead to disasters with consequences such as:

a. millions of deaths,
b. economic damage,
c. environmental damage,
d. millions of environmental refugees;

Pointing out that most developing countries are unable to take informed decisions to deal with the consequences of climate change, because of either lack of information or resources or both,

Disturbed that some developed countries understand climate change and its consequences, however don’t feel obliged to take action, believing the problem will resolve itself,

Noting that not all countries agree that global warming is an outcome of human activity and not a natural phenomena and that remedial action should be taken,

Seeking international cooperation from all countries within the UN to accept the Kyoto protocol,

Aware that if nothing is done, millions of lives are in danger,

Keeping in mind that some governments are taking no action against climate change, because they fear the impact on their economy,

Realizing that Belarus produces 0,2% of the worlds CO2 emission and the USA produces 22% of the world's CO2 emissions,

  1. Calls for efforts to get the USA to accept the Kyote Protocol;
  2. Urges for extra care and investments of LEDCs to protect existing natural resources which will in turn:
    1. Bring tourism and wealth,
    2. Help reduce the CO2 emissions;
  3. Asks the MEDCs (More Economically Developed Countries) to use their economic advantage to help the LEDCs by:
    1. Informing them of the dangerous consequences of climate change,
    2. Helping them to prepare and to defend themselves against natural disasters that may occur as a result of climate change,
    3. Giving them the intelligence, technical support and means to attack the problem;
  4. Reminds richer and more developed countries that they will have to play a bigger part in solving global warming than developing countries;
  5. Trusts that developed countries will try to stop unnecessary CO2 emission by:
    1. Applying energy efficiency technologies,
    2. Using renewable energy sources,
    3. Protecting and replanting of trees and forests,
    4. Reducing the use of polluting energy resources such as the ones which make use of fossil fuel,
    5. Making clean car technology available and, if possible, less expensive, because also cars contribute a lot to the emission of CO2;
  6. Invites the UN to persuade countries which are either not intending to ratify or have not expressed a position yet to accept the Kyoto Protocol as soon as possible,
  7. Encourages governments to lead the way for their citizens to change their behaviour to stop global warming by encouraging maximum energy efficiency at home, by:
    1. Distributing phamplets and folders possibly with symbols and drawings for the illiterate,
    2. Launching media campaigns through:
      1. Television,
      2. Internet,
      3. Newspapers;
  8. Calls upon governments to set rules and regulations about the amount of green house gasses produced by livestock,
  9. Decides to remain actively seized in the matter.
