The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD), established in December of 1992, was created to implement and follow through with the sustainable development goals jointly created by the General Assembly and the various Economic and Social Councils. Originally, the CSD was charged with actualizing the Earth Summit; however, now it is tasked with overseeing a wide range of topics, from environmental issues to socioeconomic and even human rights issues. The CSD is unique in that the committee has a wide scope of jurisdiction and can debate a vast range of topics. For this reason, the two vastly different, but related, topics of Sustainable Development of Megacities and Ensuring Water Security will yield an exciting and deeply interesting debate for delegates of all levels.
Position papers are due on November 7 at 11:59PM PST to your committee email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
