United Nations Development Programme

The United Nations Development Programme is an Assembly dedicated to sustainable development and recovery facilitation. In achieving these goals, delegates in the Programme will work toward innovating and implementing change aimed at emerging problems while demonstrating leadership and diplomacy on the world stage.

This year, the Office of the Secretary-General has tasked the UNDP with addressing two distinct problem-spaces:

1. Post-conflict redevelopment

2. Strategic Water Security

Aimed at delegates of all skill levels, the UNDP is an accessible committee that no delegate, regardless of previous experience, should feel uncomfortable participating in.

To be eligible for individual awards, delegates in GA committees are required to submit a position paper. Each delegate should submit a one-page paper, single spaced, to their chair via email by 11:59 pm on November 24th, 2016. The delegate with the best research will also receive the Position Paper Award. For a sample paper, please click here
