After a night of hard partying, this morning didn’t seem like a good one for debate, but the delegates at the UNEP committee got entertained in an unmoderated caucus over finding ideas to put together in a working paper.
On the other side of the fence, delegation of Japan disapproved this point of view, stating that war cannot be avoided by protecting the environment, as it doesn’t represent an essential level of collaboration between states.
An important remark was made by the delegate of Egypt, who emphasized that there should be a permanent body in order to monitor the violations of the international legislation meant to protect the environment. However, their point requires detailed justification, as it brought into attention a valid remark, very important also.
