Currently in the United Nations Development Programme, the issue of water filtration and its effects on the environment remain a key topic of discussion. Earlier today, the UNDP was presented with a crisis in which the Nepal Waterfowl had become extinct as a result of horribly contaminated water; a crisis which quickly shifted discussion. Within the committee, obvious allies have been established-China, India, France, and Austria seeming to be the head honchos of individual groups and the producing of working papers. Each group of allied delegations are attempting to merge their working papers; although certain small details seem to be preventing those mergers from becoming a reality just yet. During moderated caucuses, delegates passionately expressed the harmful correlation between the use of coal and its contamination of countless water sources, the need for tighter environmental regulations, and the creation of programs to educate the public on the significance of healthy relationships between man and nature.
