 In Nuclear Reactors in Conflict Zones

Country: Mexico
Delegate Name: Isabella Rivas Ladino

The Delegation Of Mexico firmly believes in and supports the use of nuclear energy and nuclear power plants to provide sustainable and clean energy in the future and in the present, and for a sustainable and hope-filled future for the Wolrd and our country, limiting the dangerous uses of nuclear weapons in violent and war-related issues. Mexico believes that that is the right of all states and all countries to use peaceful nuclear energy sources to use safer, technological, economic, and social benefits from atomic energies. As a delegation primarily lenient on fossil fuels, and gas-powered energy sources, specifically from the United States, but since 2015 has set the Energy Transition Law, to set 35% of electricity to be powered from energy sources, nuclear energy sources, in 2024. Recognizing the potential risks and dangers that nuclear-powered energy plants can cause, the delegation of Mexico has recognized and worked to further better the conditions.

The Delegation Of Mexico has previously imposed two power plants supplying about 3% of the country’s electricity in the past few years. The first nuclear power plant opened in 1989, with past urges to move to nuclear energy instead of harmful fossil fuels. Mexico has also recognized the harmful and dangerous effects that the radioactive materials could potentially cause and has already imposed policies and worked towards the safer use of nuclear energy, including establishing a plan to prevent leaks into villages and towns, notifying and using the new IEC safety policies, procedures for safer recoveries and preventions by the CNSNS, and establishing additional security around the power plants to prevent any type of intervention. The two current nuclear power plants in Mexico include Laguna Verde 1 and Laguna Verde 2. Additionally, Mexico has formed the National Commotion On Safety and Safeguards, The National Center Of Nuclear Research, all taken over by the Ministry of Safety, all organizations dedicated to training officials and operators for the plant. Additionally, Mexico’s Energy Ministry created two companies to manage radioactive waste, in 2018, joining the IAEA Convention on Safety of Spent Fuel Management and Safety of Radioactive Waste Management. Mexico believes that to ensure a peaceful, carbon-free future, all nations need to urge for clean energy sources, including wind, solar, and electric energy but also encourages and urges but also supplying proper training, education, and awareness over the potential dangers from power plants.
