About

United Nations Economic and Social Council for Asia and the Pacific

The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) is the world’s largest regional intergovernmental platform with fifty-three Member States and nine associate members. UNESCAP has emerged as a robust regional think-tank, providing countries with an analytical perspective of the region's evolving monetary, social and environmental dynamics. UNESCAP aims to promote inclusive and sustainable financial and social growth in the Asia-Pacific region, with priority given for implementing the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Suitable for all intermediate delegates, UNESCAP is the perfect committee for anyone with an interest in one of the world’s most quickly-developing areas.

Dais Members

Claire Charvet
Director

Claire Charvet is a rather stressed and sleep-deprived senior in Juanita High School’s Cambridge Program, and is thrilled to be serving as your Director. Claire first joined MUN after her friends dragged her to her first conference—PACMUN 2018—and has been in love with it ever since. When not MUN-ing or actively avoiding college decisions, Claire enjoys playing piano, reading, and taking far too many pictures of her bunny.

Shreya Vasisht
Chair

Shreya Vasisht is currently a sophomore at Eastlake High School. Originally joining MUN to work on her public speaking skills, she has discovered that it's so much more. She enjoys debating, meeting new people, and interacting with other delegates. Outside of MUN, Shreya can be seen playing soccer or volleyball. She has always looked at MUN as a safe space to express her thoughts and ideas, and she hopes that she will create that same space for other delegates. She is very excited to serve as your chair for UNESCAP and is excited to see all that you come up with!

Emmi Wilkinson
Assistant-Director

Emmi Wilkinson is a current senior and IB Diploma student at Skyline High School. She had always been interested in international relations and exploring global perspectives since her experience living in the United Kingdom. After moving to the United States, her love for MUN quickly developed. After attending multiple conferences and enjoying the different crises her committees faced and the resolutions they passed, she decided to try her hand at staffing. When she’s not writing resolutions, she enjoys practicing karate and watching documentaries. After a Skyline club revival, she’s back and excited to be serving as your Assistant Director of UNESCAP for PACMUN 2020.
