The United Nations Security Council is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations, and is charged with maintaining peace and international security. Their powers include the establishment of peacekeeping missions and military action, and nowhere is their intervention needed more than Yemen. Since their previous president ousted their newest president in a coup d'etat and was subsequently assassinated, the country has dissolved into chaos. Famine and cholera have swept the country, and the outbreak of civil war has prevented sufficient aid from reaching the stricken. In this special session of the U.N. Security Council, delegates will have to navigate tense regional politics and other vested international interests to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, and potentially even ending the conflict there.
Topic: Impact on the Environment and the Economy
The Yemeni Crisis has taken a high toll on the people and economy of Yemen making recovery from the conflict, even with a cessation of hostilities, difficult. The land has been ravaged the economy heavily disrupted. How can the UNSC address the ecological and economic issues of this war-stricken country, to aid in recovery both before and after the conflict ends?
Topic: Migration and Humanitarian Impacts
The needs of the Yemeni people do not end with adequate food and water; more than 2 million people have been forced to flee their homes since the beginning of the conflict and millions have been afflicted by cholera, a preventable disease. How should the UNSC handle the flow of migrants both within and outside Yemen’s borders and the humanitarian issues rife within the country?
