Topic 1: Access to water
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has been observing the current problem with access to water for its citizens. In 2015 the United Nations established a set of 17 goals, known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030 in order to build a better world for the sake of our people. The sixth of the SDGs is ensuring access to water and sanitation for all, as clean water has previously been recognized by the United Nations as fundamental human right.
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has trouble with clean and access to water to its citizens. Only 61 percent of households have access to safely manage water services. That means 39 percent of households do not have access to safely managed water service.
The action that is recommended by The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is for the United Nations to help countries around the world to have access to water and developed countries to help out to countries that are in need of safely managed water service. As a committee we need to work together to achieve a good resolution and have access to safe water to all of the countries that are in need of it.
Some countries are in more need than others for example a lot of countries in Africa need access to safe water since they do not have the infrastructure to manage safe water for its citizens. They are in need of developed countries that are willing to take action on the problem. As Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, we need help to get the 39 percent of the households that are in need of safe water.
