Introduction to Committee and Topic:
The Ambassador Program was initiated in 2013, and has been functioning as the flagship committee of AIMUN ever since. In this committee, delegates will conduct discussions regarding the theme of AIMUN 2023, in the position of ambassador of respective countries. The ambassador is usually the head of United Nations delegations, and the permanent representative of his or her home country to the United Nations. Therefore, it is duty-bound for the ambassadors to consult, communicate, and coordinate with all the delegates of their country for coordinated statements and following actions, and at the same time connect other committees in this conference as organized. In addition, ambassadors in AIMUN 2023 will also have the opportunity to play a leading role in their delegation in the joint crisis with other committees including UNGA, UNEP, and HRC.
The idea of sustainable development has come to occupy a central place in seeking solutions to the contradiction between environmental issues and economic development. With limited resources, fragile natural systems, respective interests and mutual profits, achieving sustainable goals requires global integration. A separate, fragmented and beggar-thy-neighbor international community serves no individual well. However, anti-globalization has been on the rise these years, while the pandemic and geopolitical conflicts have added urgency, shaping the integrated world towards localization and regionalization. This poses great challenges for sustainability. In AIMUN 2023, delegates of the Ambassador Program will collaborate with other committees in navigating sustainable development problems. Ambassadors will work on issues such as trade protectionism and economic nationalism, supply chain challenges, food system and agricultural sustainability, natural resources and renewable energy, trust deficit and political instability, developing solutions to rebuild a global order of mutual understanding and mutual trust.
