4. Research for Mock Session--topic research
On November 9th, we will conduct a mock session instead of our usual meeting. This mock session will last from 3:45-8:30 with a short break for a pizza dinner around 5:45. Each of you have been assigned a country to represent and the Secretariat has determined the topic to be resolved is Agriculture Development and Food Security. Today, we will begin researching that topic and looking at possible ideas to solving this problem.
First, please make sure you have read the background guide.
Next, look at some general UN related websites on Agriculture Development and Food Security.

Once you have established a good working background knowledge of the problem, it is time to focus on possible solutions. See if your country is impacted by this problem. What action, if any, has it taken? Is it a developing country that is threatened by food insecurity, or a donor country that has helped establish programs to assist these countries?
