Theme : Oil issues
Oil is an omnipresent and essential resource in our society which will soon be unavailable. Indeed, it concerns the entire world but it has caused and still causes problems in various fields of work such as economy, ecology or even politics. Delegates made use of the issues to find solutions to counter problems such as atmospheric pollution or conflicts and instability due to oil.
Although the point was to try to solve actual matters, our eyes were also headed towards the future, this is why in the General Assembly, delegates debated on energy transition and emission reduction. Now is the time to make a better future and not let our world lead to chaos.

CHAIRS: LAURE MAZURIER AND ILYASS KETTAFF
Requests the creation of a system of sponsorship to encourage investment in renewable energies involving for each partnership:
a) One developed country with a high rate of carbon dioxide emissions funding a project submitted by a developing country in need of financial support for implementation on its territory of renewable energies technologies, services, and research laboratories. The fund could be integrated in the Green Climate Fund.
b) The launching of an exchange program between both of the countries involved for engineers and other actors involved in the missions concerning innovations related to the development of renewable energies of both the countries involved. It would aim to make each of the engineers benefit from the expertise and experience, related to the renewable energies sector, to be found in the country they visit.
c) The creation of a commission, to judge the reliability and viability of the projects submitted by the countries to be sponsored. The commission should respect parity between representatives of the sponsored countries, sponsoring countries and IPCC members.
d) The sending of an observation mission in the country sponsored after the achievement of their project. This would aim to ensure the application of the initial project in the terms agreed on by the jury. The observer team should be composed of members of the IPCC and of the sponsoring country.
