UNGA Future Scenario – 2200
The year is 2200. Earth is a contaminated wreck of a planet after hundreds of years of unobstructed pollution and dumping toxic waste in to the environment. 3rd world countries are so overpopulated that no land in their countries remains untouched by human development, forcing billions of people to live in squalor and filth as they struggle to survive on the scraps of food they can collectively scavenge. Other countries face similar problems, as major cities expand substantially to accommodate their increasing population. Corporate businesses have forever been polluting the environment and now, combined with the amount of overpopulation, deforestation and reduction in foodstuff growing space has finally tipped the planetary ecological equilibrium overboard, leaving the global population to slowly suffocate under the new, unbreathable atmosphere. Average life expectancy in crowded, industrial cities are around 40 and dropping every year. Even in the least polluted areas of the world, life expectancy is around 55 due to the spread of the pollution covering the world.
Concerning the effect from individual countries, America, with its huge economy and consumerist behavior, has had a huge impact on the environment. China, representing the largest proportion of the manufacturing industry, has also made a large environmental impact. European countries changed their environmental stance a long time ago in order to reduce the amount of total pollution, and consequently have had the smallest rates of pollution. Africa has remained plunged in poverty thanks to the west cutting off aid in the 2150's due to starting resource shortages, and consequently has also not made a large impact on the environment. In response many states elected pan-African leaders who dedicated resources to the fast expanding AU.
Foreseeing the ‘end of the world’ many years in advance, scientists from many different areas have finally developed an executable plan to mass migrate a large population of humans to Mars. Together with all major space agencies in the world, the colonization of Mars has been made possible through the construction of two giant spaceships, each with the capacity to contain **** sections of 50,000 people. One of these ships has been built in America, using NASA’s highly experienced team and the under-developed area of Texas as their assembly area. The other was built using by the collective resources of Asia and Africa, destroying a large, less densely populated area of South Africa so they have enough space to build the colossal ship. Each section will be taken from one country, and contain their governmental bodies in the population.
However, obviously every country on the planet cannot fit in these two ships, which is why this meeting has been called. The reason for this meeting is therefore to discuss which countries, and their people, should be allowed on to the ships. By the end of the meeting the countries with the most conclusive reasons for being allowed to colonize Mars will be allowed on to the ships.
