INVESTIGAMOS SOBRE LOS TEMAS DE LA CONFERENCIA2. RESEARCHING CONFERENCE TOPICSTEMA: EL TRÁFICO DE ANIMALESEl tráfico de animales es un tema importante para muchos países. En países pobres, se utiliza paraganar dinero. Cuando los niños trafican, no van a la escuela y no pueden estudiar. También haytráfico de animales cuando gente rica viaja a países pobres y compran animales. Después, escondenlos animales para pasar los controles del aeropuerto para vender después los animales a un altoprecio.TOPIC: ANIMAL TRAFFICKINGAnimal trafficking is a topic that is important in many countries because animal trafficking is avicious cycle. In poor countries, people use animal trafficking to earn money. When the childrentraffic, they don’t go to school and these children don’t learn measures and laws, and they can’tstudy. Animal trafficking also occurs when rich people go to developing countries and buy animalsfrom poor people at low prices, after the rich people hide the animals to cross the airport, and afterthey sell these animals at a high price.TEMA: EL CALENTAMIENTO GLOBALLa subida de la temperatura causa el efecto invernadero, que describe como se calienta la tierra.La atmosfera de la tierra contiene químicos naturales que atrapan el calor del sol, pero la actividadhumana también contribuye al efecto invernadero, haciendo que el planeta se caliente más de lo queharía de forma natural. El efecto invernadero se refiere al incremento de la temperatura de la tierradebido a la acción humana. Los gases más importantes son el metano, el dióxido de carbono y elóxido de nitrógeno.TOPIC: GLOBAL WARMINGGlobal warming is very important because the increase in temperature causes the greenhouse effect,which describes the way the earth is warmed: The earth’s atmosphere naturally contains certainchemicals which trap heat from the sun, but human activity also contributes to the greenhouseeffect, causing the planet to warm more than it would naturally. Global Warming refers to theincrease in the earth’s temperature through the greenhouse effect that is caused by human activity.The most important greenhouse gases are methane, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide.

COUNTRY: BELGIUM In the country of Belgium there is a lot of heavy industry. This industry produces high levels of greenhouse gas emissions. Belgium ranks 88th in countries that pollute the most. The consequences of this pollution are rises in temperature, increases in precipitation and flooding. Alberto Rivero PAÍS: JORDANIA Mi país está situado en el oriente medio y su capital es Amman. Los mayores problemas ambientales en Jordania son la escasez del agua, la erosión de la tierra y la deforestación.

  • 5. SAMPLE POSITION PAPERIndonesiaDelegates: Celia and JonathanSustainable Forest ManagementUnited Nations Forum on ForestsThe country of Indonesia is concerned about promoting sustainable forestry because:Indonesia is a developing country located in Southeast Asia and Oceania. Indonesia’s forests are very diverseand represent about 10% of the world’s tropical forests. Indonesia ranks third among all countries, in termsof total area of tropical forest. Indonesia is a major producer of forest products. Illegal logging accounted forup to 70% of total timber national production in 2000. Forest materials are the largest exports in Indonesia.Total forest products exports amount to some US $ 4.8 billion. Indonesia also produces non-wood forestryproducts like bamboo, pine resin, honey, fruits... Indonesian forest industry is a strategic sector in creatingjob opportunities; the number of people employed in the forest sector rose from around 10.6 million in 1993to about 15.4 million 1998 . Indonesia supports the world’s second highest level of biodiversity and its floraand fauna is a mixture of Asian and Australian species. Indonesia is the second-most deforested country inthe world; over 40% of the country’s forests were cleared in the last 50 years. Fire also is a significantenvironmental and economic problem in Indonesia.The country of Indonesia is working to promote sustainable forestry on a national level by:The governments of Japan and Indonesia are going to integrate environmental, social and economic values offorests. Deforestation occurs because paper and other factories need trees to operate. Many people areemployed in illegal logging operations, and benefit from it. Consequences of deforestation include thedecrease of local water supplies, increased erosion, and more frequent forest fires. Forest clearance byfarmers is a significant but no dominant cause of deforestation; the main cause of deforestation in Indonesiais the need of wood products and commodities that Indonesians need for daily life. The Ministry of Forestryand the Basic Forestry Law of 1999 determine the forest estate and plan the use of Indonesia’s forest.Indonesia authority and responsibility over forest is divided among central, provincial, and districtgovernments.On an international level the country of Indonesia is working to cooperate in protecting andpreserving our planet’s forests by:Indonesia is a member of the United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF), the Task Force on Forest LawEnforcement and Governance (FLEG), Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REED)and the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO). Indonesia also has recently signed agreementswith several countries (including the United Kingdom and Malaysia) to combat illegal forestry activities,especially illegal trade.The country of Indonesia recommends that the committee take the following actions: 1. That the government implements and enforces all of the laws against illegal logging, contracts more rangers and increases fines. 2. That people who take part in illegal logging in forests have the obligation to plant more trees. 3. That there be more control over zones where they are going to cut down trees because there are many species of live beings that live in ten forest. 4. That the forest fires and the erosion in these zones be more controlled. Celia and Jonathan
