    Water is a vital component to the survival of all living things. Some parts of the world like the rural regions of Africa, does not always meet its' basic requirement of water. The Delegation of Afghanistan proposes the building of structures to obtain fresh water through the ground. We would love to hear suggestions whether it is in favour or against, in order to achieve the best possible solution.  Smile

    The delegation of Slovakia also agrees that water is not only a basic necessity but also, unclean water is also the "gateway drug" to many diseases and sicknesses because water is the carrier many viruses which if left untreated, may inflict many people with potentially deadly diseases.

    "By solving our water worries, we’re also alleviating world hunger, relieving poverty, lowering the
    global disease burden, slowing rampant population growth, and preserving the biosphere. Children
    will no longer be yanked out of school to gather water and the firewood needed to boil water, so
    education levels will begin to rise. Since women also waste hours a day running these same errands,
    providing clean water also betters everything from quality of family life to quantity of family income
    (because mom now has time to get a job). But the best news is that water is merely one example of
    this interdependent phenomenon. The solutions to all of our grand challenges are similarly stacked
    and toppling any of these dominoes sets off a positive chain reaction"

    Diamandis, Peter H., and Steven Kotler. "The Upside of Water." Abundance: The Future Is Better than You Think. New York: Free, 2012. Print.


    As Diamandis states, by solving this one simple problem of the lack of clean water, we save billions of lives. However, we, Slovakia, also believe that we need to help these developing countries slowly build up their self-dependence instead of continuously providing support for an indefinite time, which would be impossible.

    The delegation of Djibouti would like to inform the committee that water is not truly necessary for life. A more pressing issue that must be addressed is the wasting of alcohol and marijuana for 'medical means' instead of the true purpose of leisure and recreation.

    The Delegation of Afghanistan believes that the Delegation of Djibouti (of specpol) does not state a valid point in this discussion. Please refrain from disrupting another committee's discussion if you are not providing valid input.

    The Delegation of Afghanistan strongly believes that the Delegation of Slovakia's statement is a solution to both short and long term goals. When we fund for food and water, we temporary support developing nations, as education in youth will lead to a more self sufficient future for the country.

    Djibouti of WHO believes that this situation can be mitigated by educating the people of the third world nations and
    by informing them of techniques on how to sustain the water which they have, for example proper irrigation, rain collection and proper distribution inside the country.

    Afghanistan of WHO recognizes Djibouti's ideas of teaching them techinques to become more sufficient in the future as a outstanding idea. Thanks you for your contribution.

    The delegate of the United Kingdom in the WHO agrees with the previous posts in that clean, accessible water is absolutely necessary for life. The delegate of the UK recognizes that not all countries may have sufficient water supplies for their citizens, and that this is a problem that must be overcome. We propose several possible solutions for this water crisis: the digging of affordable and maintainable wells by UN workers, NGOs, or volunteers, the addition of desalination facilities where applicable, and the distribution of iodine pills and water pumps, although these are not completely effective because the people who use them will become dependent on the distribution of these pills. We want the developed countries to become self sufficient.

    Water Supply in 3rd World Countries Empty Creative Water Solutions

    Post by WHO_Sweden on Sat May 17, 2014 12:11 pm

    We can all agree that water is an absolutely essential part of the resolution due to it's relevance to human life. However, we have to start looking for more creative solutions. Although creating more wells would be beneficial, it is simply not enough to sustain life in the future. Today we have the means and potential to make great discoveries and Sweden believes that we should press the restart button and look at this crisis from a different scientific perspective. If we are capable of making water out of moon dust (which has been done) we should certainly be able to look at alternatives from extracting water from our earth's resources.

    In response to Sweden's creative solutions, we must also consider the investments we make. The most cost effective resolution, may not always be the best resolution. In order to create the best possible solution, we must find ways to minimize the cost while maximizing the results. Thank you for your contributions to ideas.

    Our goal should be providing the basic amounts of water to countries that have not reached such goals. To do so, there are projects that we can propose covering provision of water, sanitation, and hygiene, in addition educational projects regarding household water treatment and safe storage of water

    Thank you for your response Costa Rica. Your suggestion will be taken into consideration by Afghanistan for a possible solution.
